When I worked at St. Joseph's Home for Children I became aware of the many children in the community that suffer from mental health. During this time it also became apparent how complicated children's mental health is. Recently an employee at Washburn explained the in depth training required to work at Washburn.

Review from Guidestar
June 29, 2010

In a world where increased demand for services is often met with decreased funding, thus leading to lack of availability of services, it is refreshing to see Washburn providing these vital interventions for the most vulnerable members of our society. Washburn's mission gives confidence to children, hope to their parents, and enables all of them to give back to society more effectively in the long-run. The Twin Cities are so blessed to have these services available to their citizens.

Washburn does amazing work with children and families who otherwise most likely would not get their mental health needs met. I especially appreciate their culturally relevant services for families of color when most other counseling services do not have this expertise.

Most recently I got a terrific referral to a local practitioner who is helping me find services for my daughter.

Bloomington Public Schools in collaboration with Fairview, Children's Dental Services, and Washburn Center for Children has opened a clinic in one of the District's Early Chilhdood Family Center site which I am coordinator. Washburn has a psychologist on site serving children 0 to 5. The psychologist has been wonderful in her involvement with our students and families including being open and effective with referrals made by teachers or through our early childhood screening process. Parents and staff have expressed many times how much help they have received from asking questions of the psychologist, having her visit their classrooms to do observations, talking to parents, and advising. Before when a concern about a child arised we had only early childhood special education for support which did not always meet the particular emotional/social needs of certain children. Now ECSE and Washburn work very close together in meeting needs for the very young children and thier parents. On behalf of staff and parents we applaud Washburn!

This was the first year that I volunteered at a Washburn event and I was so impressed with the level of professionalism of the staff and the exceptional organization of the event. Not to mention the enthusiasm of the other volunteers and their ability to raise additional money at the event through fun and rewarding activities (live auction, skills contests, etc) If Washburn needs volunteers at any of their events - I will be there!

I had the best internship at this amazing organization and am very thankful for the experience. Washburn provides high quality services for children and families. It was clear that the staff are passionate about their work. For the staff, Washburn provides great supervision, a happy and healthy atmosphere, and top notch on-going professional training.

everything I learned and was able to apply as an intern. In addition, I was able to witness the impact the programs have on the families they serve.

Ways to make it better...

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

not change a thing, but help them to increase their funding in order to provide even more services and reach more people in the community.

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

hard to describe in few words- the amazing staff and the families I worked with.

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

professional, passionate, friendly, fun, healthy, and open.

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

expand the programs in order to serve more people and increase research in order to demonstrate the impact of the therapeutic services provided.

Ways to make it better...

I had been there longer.

Our school has developed a collaboration with Washburn Child Guidance Center. This collaborative partnership allows several of our school families to have access to the guidance, therapy, and resources that they can benefit from in leading a healthier life. Students often make gains academically at school which we feel comes as a result of them receiving the outside support that they need. The support continues for our school families through the summer so that students do not loose this valuable connection.

I donated gifts to a family for Christmas. It was part of the Washburn adopt a family Christmas program. It is a great program that allows families to provide gifts to their kids. A lot of families wouldn't be able to afford Christmas gifts.
