My daughter was on staff at WCFC as a social worker. Her teammates and the amount of support she received to fill her needs were a testament to the Org Chart and the high standards of care WCFC embodies. Because her needs/suggestions were honored, she could concentrate her efforts on number 1: kids.

I was at Washburn as a member of staff for three and a half years, working in a support role with several of the organisation's therapy and day treatment programs. My experience was of an organisation staffed by highly committed clinicians working with children and parents facing multiple challenges in their lives - and of similarly committed support staff maximisisg limited resources in a complex, ever-changing funding environment. Washburn has unique qualities as organisation. It fosters a positive, friendly atmosphere, enabling children and families to make progress in their lives on many levels as well as supporting teachers and the school system generally. Bringing to bear the latest academic research and available data, Washburn has also pioneered innovative approaches to many problems in the area of children's mental health.

My experience at Washburn was extraordinary. Washburn is a supportive and ever evolving environment that works with employees to build skills, knowledge, community awareness and support. The services at Washburn are geared toward helping the entire family to heal from painful events and to access the coping and support to build a better future. Washburn's focus on continued education and collaboration between professionals is outstanding. Washburn is an organization that offers real help to children, families and community!

I support Washburn for the following reasons: 1. My daughter received assessment services when she was in 3rd grade. 2. I am a teacher who had three students receive day treatment services from Washburn from 1992 through 1999. Washburn is one of the few places that offers exceptional treatment for at risk students. 3. I am currently teaching at a school that has a full time psychologist from Washburn Child Guidance Center for the past two years on staff. (This was made possible by a grant.)

I worked at Washburn for nearly 17 years, and before that I was a volunteer there for several years. I often run into former clients - they come up to me, not vice versa, as that would not be professional - to thank me, report on how well their children are doing years later, and tell me what a fine experience they had had while their children and their families were being served at Washburn. A wonderful organization, and I continue to support it financially to this day - many years later, after retiring - and hope otherwill do the same.!

Washburn, their staff and services are extremely professional and flexible. They have worked with our school district providing direct clinical mental health service in all of our school settings. We are a district of over 10,000 students. They collaborate with our schools staff to assist students and families in the area of students mental health needs providing assessment and service in a timely manner, much faster than any "medical referrals". Turn around time for a referral is 10 days -2 weeks. A medical referral can take 6 months. In addition they provide staff development for the school staff in the area of children's mental health and family therapy when needed. The will also coordinate with other county agencies and refer for more extensive service as needed. We have been developing this program with them for several years and can say nothing but good about our partnership.
