I volunteered at Washburn working on the annual golf tournament that raises funds and awareness for the kids of Washburn. I had a great experience not only working on the tournament, but also being there and seeing those in the community give back to the kids and support the efforts of Washburn.

I began volunteering for Washburn because they do work that is near and dear to my heart-- treating children's mental health issues similar to those experienced by my stepson. I have CONTINUED working with Washburn because I have learned that they are top in their field, setting standards in children's mental health especially related to the treatment of childhood trauma. They are an extremely well-run organization that provides essential interventions to children that truly turn their lives around. Washburn's services SAVE THE COMMUNITY MONEY by improving troubled children's ability to live normal, productive lives vs. failing in school and entering the juvenile justice system. The earlier a child receives help for behavioral and emotional problems, the better their prognosis and ability to turn their lives around. Washburn works closely with families to involve parents in their children's mental health by improving parenting skills and linking to other necessary family services. Washburn provides services to families at all levels of society--suburban, urban, poor and well-to-do. They are a crucial community resource.

I have worked at a variety of non-profits, and Washburn stands out. I truly haven't seen another local non-profit that acts so congruently with its mission. It is a fact that, without Washburn's leadership in the field, the entire local children's mental health scene would deteriorate.

Washburn provides much need assistance to families and children in need of dire help. Despite the unique challenges each child struggles with, the professionals at Washburn work with the child to overcome their difficulties. From my experience the staff is excellent and passionate about improving and forever altering the lives the children and their families.

The Washburn Center for Children is a terrific agency dedicated to helping children overcome trauma and difficult family situations by integrating them into a larger community and by creating positive relationships for the children with caring and reliable adults. The Washburn staff also works directly with families to develop effective parenting and relational strategies. From my limited time at Washburn thus far, it is clearly a great place. The staff, from therapists to administrators, are enthusiastic and passionate about their work. They are incredibly organized and determined to help struggling children and their families.

The final aspect of my master's in counseling and psychology was to complete a year-long internship in the elementary day treatment classroom at Washburn. Many of the children experienced complex trauma or had other emotional and behavioral challenges that made their lives challenging. I was impressed by the individualized and intensive group approach, based on proven treatment practices, to case management we as counselors took to assist each child. Intervention and stabilizion of the child's crisis made peaceful integration into their family, school, and every day life possible.

I have personally had an opportunity to work side by side with therapists at Washburn and administer child-specific treatment strategies. Through that work, I have seen children's lives change for the positive which in turn impacts their community.

I am honored to be participating in the planning for Washburn's Development and External Relations team. In delving deeper into the history and performance of this agency, I am astonished that more people don't know about it and that they consistently have such strong and profound impact on the mental health of children in our community. Of course, their work touches EVERYONE, not just clients/participants. This planning process is but one example of the way that the organization planfully and proactively approaches their role in meeting the unmet needs of the community. With all this great success, Washburn stands head and shoulders above many other players in this field and I think that plans to capitalize on the good will that the success engenders - maintaining contact with those served by the organization and those who previously served as volunteers - will take the fund development and community relations efforts to an even higher level of success. Congratulations, and keep shooting for the stars!

The Great!
