For the past 19 years and counting, I have been a host parent for WIN Family Services. First I want to thank Mr. And Mrs. Laws for the opportunity to allow me to be a part of their vision for our community. Their tenacity and commitment to the youth in which we service has been admirable as well as honorable. They have given new meaning to the quote, "it takes a village to raise a child", for they give more of their heart and time than required. They give their complete souls. For that reason, my loyalty and devotion will remain paramount in this commitment indefinitely. Not only have they allowed me the opportunity to love unconditionally the children that I serve, but they have allowed me to love in the agape manner in which I will take with me the rest of my days. Thank you with every fiber of my being Mr. and Mrs. Laws!

I came here to intern for a summer and left with far more information and knowledge about the industry than I would ever imagine. Met some wonderful caring individuals who take their job very seriously, love what they do and are great at it. 10/10 would recommend this agency!

win family services provides an array of quality comprehensive service to children adolescents and adults using a holistic approach. I’ve worked with a myriad of services comparable to WFS and l never had expected the level of passion commitment and professionalism. I would highly recommend WIN as opposed to the larger competitors. I’ve heard similar centiments from families and stakeholders.

WIN Family Services has been a phenomenal internship experience thus far. Entering this new workplace as an intern I was nervous about what the atmosphere would be like, however, everyone greeted me with open arms and accepted me into their workplace family. This is an organization that I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an internship opportunity; all of the employees are warm-hearted, kind, and full of energy. In addition, the CEO of this organization is truly amazing and cares about his employees as well as the clients that WIN serves. Godliness, Excellence, Team Work and Services are the core principles of this organizations and all employees take the values serious which makes the environment very successful. I am truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to meet such genuine and loving people.

WIN Family Services has been helping families in the Baltimore area since 1992. Working with the entire WIN team has been a pleasure and it has touched me to see the lives they have changed. They put the children and foster parents first interests before their own, and work hard on a daily basis. To say the least, I am very proud to be a part of such an honorable and trustworthy organization. They create a family feeling within the organization allowing for a maximum level of comfort. The company culture is inviting and welcoming.

There are more than 4000 youth in foster care in MD. WIN has been dedicated for 25 years to helping as many youth as possible. I witness it every day. The staff and foster parents are all dedicated and passionate about the work they do. Keep up the amazing work!

WIN is responsible for my success in my workplace today. As a young adult I was employed with WIN. I learned powerful and successful tools of engagement when working with youth and families. I learned how to express the value of my relationships with others in a healthy manner and in turn shared the same insight and skills with those children I worked with. Being non judgmental and showing agape love with redirection is probably my saving grace today! The work, takes work, but it works! I will forever love my WIN FAMILY

I came to WIN Family Services, Inc. (WIN) on October 31, 2005 as the Executive Administrative Coordinator and Al Law's, CEO, personal assistant. In March of 2008 I assumed the role of Personnel Manager while continuing most of my previous responsibilities. Working for WIN is not always easy - lots of work often without a lot of time to complete required tasks - however that is okay because I know that I am doing GOD's work. I am so grateful that GOD lead me to WIN. Through Mr. Law's excellent unwavering leadership, Family Strengthening Training and the WIN Model, I have learned how to be successful not only in my business world but also in my personal world as well. The staff at WIN supports the community's youth in so many ways; supporting them to mature into strong successful adults. When I first started at WIN I was not sure if it was for me because it was so different from anything I had experienced before; having worked in the corporate industry, mostly in Human Resources for more than two decades. It didn't take me long, however, to realize that I could learn a lot working at WIN. Now I know that WIN will be the last agency I plan to work at. I plan to retire at the end of next year; however only part time because the thought of leaving WIN completely is something I cannot rationalize because WIN has become part of who I am - I plan to work for WIN as long as I am physically and/or mentally able to do so. WIN - What I Need - is exactly that; I need WIN to be the person I have become; and I don't want to work anywhere else.
