The staff at Washburn made the quality of life for my child eons better. Our case manager Jane A goes above and beyond the call of duty. We are always treated in a respectful way! I don't want to think about what we would do with out the outstanding staff at Washburn!

My daughter has worked at different non-profits throughout the years. She did an internship at Washburn & was ecstatic to be hired on permanently! Her work (crisis/trauma therapy) is challenging, to say the least, but she thoroughly enjoys the organization & the teamwork & support of her co-workers. Finally getting through to a client, or having one huge success story, recharges her drive & stamina so she can dedicate 110% to every child or family. Washburn provides a tight-knit structure of dedicated professionals who take pride in themselves, each other, & their jobs in the organization they represent.

Our son was constantly setting small fire and burning things up. He was about 6-7years old. We were afraid he would do some very serious things if he was not stopped. We were so lucky to find a wonderful therapist who had a whole program for young children who were fascinated by fire. After finishing the program, he lost his focus on fire. This was priceless to us!!!

My daughter works at Washburn and is always telling me what a great company she works for. On top of her great coworkers she feels that the work that she does, even though she doesn't actually work with the children, makes her feel likes she is helping kids in need.

We gladly provide ongoing support to Washburn with our time and resources! My sister works as a School-based Mental Health Program Supervisor/Therapist. She and her colleagues do amazing work helping kids who have been dealt some pretty tough hands. Washburn staff are so competent and caring, and they work tirelessly to address the needs of kids with serious emotional and behavioral problems. Many of these kids will stave off significant, chronic problems later in life, because of efforts of Washburn during their childhood years. Keep up the great work Washburn!!

While at Washburn, I worked with talented colleagues who were committed to providing high quality mental health, consultation and training services to all members of our community who wished to obtain those services.

The very professional work of the Washburn staff with our Early Childhood Center at Westwood Lutheran Church has been exceptional. Over the last year the Washburn team has supported our work with young children and their parents with multiple observations and conferences. Services offered have been invaluable to our teaching staff and to the parents of our children. Unique opportunities included “office hours and drop-in services for parents’, the development of a unique series of classroom observations aimed not only at supporting children with challenges, but also on concrete teacher training including the use of student trainees.
