I have gotten to know the outstanding work of Washburn Center for Children by designing marketing materials for them over the past several years. I've learned so much about their mission and the people they serve through this work. They provide a crucial service to the children in our community who are struggling with social, emotional, and behavioral problems. I'm honored to have the opportunity to help share their success stories with as many people as possible. I'm continually inspired by their dedication to helping kids experience happier childhoods.

Washburn Child Guidance was a life changing experience for our son and ultimately, our family. We were referred to WCG after a preschool conference. Our son's teacher was concerned that he was not participating in activities and engaging other children. Upon sending out a representative, Kathy Hemmingway, our son's school experience took a severe change--for the better! Ms Hemmingway observed and our on two occasions and upon her findings was a suggestion to move him to a school that afforded him more stimulating activities and structured curriculum. She has continued to support our family by offering great advice and direction. I am thankful to have their services a phone call away and continue to check in when we need additional support. Washburn is a professional, personal and confidence building organization! Thank God for their services!!!

My family and our son's teachers worked for a year with an advisor from Washburn. The advisor spent time in our son's classroom, then advised his teachers and my spouse and I during numerous sessions over the year. The Washburn advisor was extremely thorough and patient, offering all kinds of useful insights for both parents and teachers. She was courteous and patient with all of us, and often provided helpful email reminders outside of our scheduled routine. I could see how our son's teachers appreciated and applied advice from the Washburn team member--the additional perspective and outside expertise was welcomed and used to great effect with all the students in the class. The Washburn approach provided very real, positive impact on our son and his classroom for which we are extremely grateful.

We have had many families receive services from Washburn Child Guidance Center. They have all been satisfied with the outcomes. This past fall, we had a representative of Washburn on site several mornings to just chat with our parents informally and answer their questions. This was a very popular event and we hope to do it again. Washburn has a sterling reputation in Minneapolis and we are proud to have a connection with them.

Washburn Center for Children works hard to incorporate health lifestyles for the children who attend its services. Employees are always looking for better ways in which they can educate themselves about their surroundings and the children's lives in order to be able to help them appropriately.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Learning more about the company through volunteering, internal meetings and meeting other employees. Also in research and gaining better insight about how successful Washburn is with the children and families.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create a greater market for its services. I think this is a great program that everyone should know about. If Washburn's services were known through out more communities, I think it would gain many more families and hopeful children.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Everyone works hard! The key component to all our work is to always help others.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very helpful and nice. It is easy to create conversation and hear different kinds of inspiring experiences.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a new facility creating and lager space for more children and families. Advertise to every community and/or even make another facility to incorporate even more communities and families.

Ways to make it better...

I was able to work directly with the children. However, it is great to see the results of my work with the fundraisers.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The fundraising and sponsorships. We work hard to create revenue to produce the kind of support that we need.

One thing I'd also say is that...

It has been a great experience being with Washburn so far. I can see why these kinds of services are important to our communities and for our children's future. Everyone should participate!

As a mentor of at-risk teens, I see the importance of making mental health services available to children. Especially with Washburn's policy of serving anyone, regardless of his/her ability to pay. What a critical service to the community!

Washburn came to my home and spent time observing my child. The observation was discussed and next steps were planned for intervention. The person who spent time with us was so helpful, kind and knowledgeable. And, it gave us a place to start and a plan to move forward from. We are very appreciative of the help received.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being able to have a place to work from with my child. It's very difficult to feel like you just don't know how to help your child function better. Having a plan of action makes you feel in control and provides comfort when things feel out of control.
