I wish I could give more stars because if you only knew what WIN has done for me here's part of my storie I came in dss care in the mid 80z to early to early 90s before coming in to WIN in the early 90s being told this is the last place dss would place me or it was back to a lock down RTC because I had been in 60-80 placements from family, group homes, foster homes and Rtcs before WIN but little did I know at the time WIN would be the last chance I ever needed I cant thank WIN enough for what they have done for me in my life The WIN staff has been the best from day 1 the CEO AL LAWS knew me before I knew who he even was and my mom and dad (meaning my WIN foster parents) have showed me what a parents love Really was I still keep in touch with WIN STAFF and former staff My mom and dad I could write so much about them alone I still go over there house for the holidays and I still talk to them they still treat me like they have from day 1 WIN brought me too there home now I have 2 college degrees and working on a 3rd that is part of my storie THANKS MR. AL LAWS AND YOUR GREAT STAFF Who knew a mans vision could change and impact so many lives Thanks Mr.Al Laws
It such an amazing place to work. You get so much support from Supervisors, and other team members. WIN cares about your self-care and success in future endeavors. I especially love that they are grounded in prayer. I find that in Social Work having prayer to start a meeting off helps ease all those attending. It allows God to work through us all spreading his love. It grounds us so that God can lead our discussion to better help all those served by WIN.
I didnt likes the program the only good part were the food.and christ hardy came and got me and robert. I likes him as a friend .hes a cool dude. He shouldn't nevered be mistreated by women especially disrespectful ones. Them others ones rating 0.
WIN Family Health puts a lot of effort into making sure their clients needs are met. Through excellent customer service, they go out of their way to meet client needs. I've seen give-aways, community events and other settings where they show their care. Their heart for the community shows in everything they do.
This agency Consistent, supportive of the youth and families that it serves. They also have a great training program to teach communication skills , parenting skills as well as understanding human and relationship processes.
WIN is one of the best. I appreciate my experience with WIN. Everyone is friendly and nice to their clients. There is a lot of positive energy and a friendly atmosphere, which keeps me coming back for services. WIN staff is always available to me whenever I call. Their exceed my expectation as a client.
Hello! I'm so excited to share about my experience with WIN and its awesome team. I connect with WIN in Cecil County. This team of workers look to meet the needs of the community in innovative ways. They create programs to help support individual needs and family needs. They focus in on services that will promote growth for their clients as well as attending to the concepts of self-efficacy and the ability to learn to how advocate for future concerns. I love a program that meets an individual where they are at but does not just leave them there but opens up a path for them that the client was not even aware was in their reach. WIN is awesome!
Well I serve several different roles I chose my most recent appointed roll to the agency I was a client before I was a member of the board I bring a little different aspect to the board from a first-hand client because I've been in your agency first as a client seeing WIN grow over the years and being able to experience it firsthand and now is my appointment roll with the board I continue to see it a grow and now work alongside of a great group of men and women on the broad I am on forever grateful to be a former client now a member of the board I cannot thank our CEO for his great vision on this program that I want took part in to help me become the better man that I am now WIN IS A world class agency and definitely a model agency to agencies around the country just seeing the growth the productivity of former clients and their productive citizens that they are putting out into the world thanks again Win
This organization cares about their clients and staff. They have good customer service and treat others with kindness, respect and non-judgmental, regardless of their situation. They ensure that customers have what they need and are diligent in their work with building strong families.
I can not say enough about WIN = What I Need. Their love and concern for people speaks for it self. They are truly change agents, not only for the people they service but for my life as well. Their core values are G.R.A.C.E. G=Godliness, R=Relationship, A=Accountability, C=customer Service and E=Excellence. I live by these principles every day. Thanks WIN for all that you do, changing Lives...strengthening Families
It’s been a privilege and honor to witness the amazing things WIN does to serve youth and families! My daughters have learned the gift of grace and giving to others because of WIN!
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 Family Services is helping me get to know the social work field. They are diverse and open to new and fun ways to bring therapeutic wellness to the surrounding community.
I have had an awesome experience working at WIN Family Services. The staff are very team oriented and everyone is treated like a family member. I am very appreciative of the fact that I can have the opportunity to see the CEO of the company and get a heartfelt, warm welcome, every single time.
I am writing this review to share how impressed I am overall with Win Family Services .
As a pastor I see first hand the effects that behavioral health related illnesses and incidents have in the wellness and recillency of our families.
Win staff works with the entire family not just the individual. They are entreated by professionals equipped to work with those needing genuine care and respect; to each of them it is more than a job - it is a calling.
Again, I applaud Win for their outstanding contribution to those with behavioral health illnesses.
Pictures below deplict a family strengthening activity done with a family I referred to Win. The youth are preparing no bake cheesecake for their families for the holidays.
WIN Family Services brings innovative programs and meets clients where they are to give them what they need to heal and grow! I love partnering with the visionaries of this organization to make real change in the community!
My experience with Win Family Services has been incredible to say the least. I started as an intern for my Master of Social Work program and when that ended I was offered a position. Win has helped me build me in so many ways. I have grown in my skills, knowledge, and experience. I have furthered myself in my career and grown as a person. I am very thankful for what this organization has done for me. I work with, what I now call family, helping other individuals grow in their process and doing what we can for this community.
WIN Family Services is an awesome faith based organization where they utilize prayer as a key principle to use in the lives of foster children, youth, and young adults.
I have been affiliated with them for a number of years and have found them to operate with integrity and professionalism. They work tirelessly to do all possible to meet the needs of families and the communities near and far, developing and creating better ways to achieve their goal of giving individuals WHAT THEY NEED.
WIN Family Services has helped many children find homes and offers a child the chance to find a family.
I was a parent with WIN Family Services for over 6 years until I adopted the child that was placed with me in foster care. During my time there the WIN Staff was available whenever I needed them. I felt supported while I was a foster parent, I knew that if help was needed it was only a phone call away. They were always professional and courteous and treated me with the upmost of respect. Whenever anyone asks me about my son I always tell them about my experiences with WIN. I would recommend anyone wanting to become a foster parent to look into the WIN Program.
We are so honored to have worked with you and your son! Be blessed!
If you are looking for excellent customer service, look no further. When working with any organization my first priority is to ensure that they will take great care of out clients. WIN exceeding expectations and made it possible for our customers to receive full-time employment.
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!
WIN Family Services is dedicated to providing a foundation for their clients, staff, and stakeholders to grow into the best possible person they can be through a strengths-based approach that empowers and affirms individuals. I am proud to be a member of WIN as a staff member for over five years and provided with the opportunity to serve our community through our many human services programs.
I have had the privilege of working with WIN for over a year and have enjoyed it so much, The staff that I work with is bar none and it is such a joy working with the families I serve.
I have been a part of WIN Family Services for 5 years and I truly believe that I have found my family and my home. I am so blessed to be a part of an organization whose mission is to create healthier and happier families across the nation. I have watched teams work tirelessly to assist clients and their families in times of crisis as well as create relationships to share in times of joy. In helping youth find their forever home, I have found mine!
I have been an employee of WIN Family Services for a little over a year now. The company treats it's employees and client's like family. All while providing us with a model that we use to support our client's and can also be used to navigate and build any relationship you are currently in. Thank you WIN for allowing me to be a part of this amazing team .
This is a great place to work. Friendly staff, family environment, and the intrinsic rewards of helping local youth are great.
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.
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
Iam a win family service foster parents,after coming from many other therapeutic agencies
I have never seen or felt so much love and caring here at Win
Once u put God first in all you do there is no room for failure
That's what win family service is all about
I've only been here for a few months but it feels like I have been a part of the WIN Family for years. The people here have all been welcoming, helpful and so very kind. It is a privilege to be a part of this awesome team.
I love this work, and WIN is an awesome place to work... I am blessed to be here and help the youth daily! Thank God for WIN!
The best place to work for ever. Clean, family, friendly environment, Incentive driven, faith based organization. Unbelievable! Free to be the best you, you want to do more, be more and give more.
WIN=What I Need, what a true statement.
WIN is an exceptional company to work for! I am a prime example of an employee who believes in the CEO and his mission for this company. He is the only CEO I've ever met that is the most generous of CEO's! He not only has a heart for the children that we serve, but for the staff that services them!! He's brilliant!! He's Awesome!! He's our CEO Al Laws Jr.!
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.
I joined the WIN Family Services team about nine months ago. I tell you that it has been an honor and a privilege to work with such beautiful people. I am very thankful to be a part of WIN family team!
WIN Family Services is a great place to work and grow. This agency has been more like a family to me. Everyone is helpful, loving and caring.
This incredible organization provides amazing value to the community, between its foster care and mental health services. The staff and CEO are extremely dedicated and are constantly creating innovative solutions to community needs.
I can not adequately express how grateful I am to be part of this organization! I have been blessed to work at WIN for four years and truly can't imagine working anywhere else! Our social workers and counselors are dedicated and tireless in their work with our foster youth and their families. We excel at reunifications and the work we do with birth families is amazing! Our leadership is committed to excellence--for our foster youth, foster parents, and the staff! We are always in need of donations to help support our unfunded DREAM program and help provide gifts for the holidays--your money will be well spent to support foster youth!
This nonprofit organization lives up to it’s mission of providing the best and most heart-felt care for the children to whom they are committed.
WIN Family Services has provided me with a great opportunity complete my MSW internship. While there, I have witnessed their outstanding service and support to the families in which they serve. The staff at WIN exemplifies the true meaning of family with the children, their families and the staff.
WIN has been the experience of a lifetime. While I've only been with the agency for a short time, i have been immediately reminded of what is true purpose. WIN embodies excellence and devotion not just to the youth, but to the entire family and friend network that surrounds. WIN has taught me through Family Strengthening Training how to care for our families in a practical sense that doesn't simply do for them, but to a greater extent builds them up as a whole so that they may be strong and do for each other. It's DREAM program features extracurricular crafts, music and sports groups that reach out to our larger surrounding community in a truly interactive and effective way. With no other agency, let alone company have I ever seen, experienced or had a greater pleasure working with than WIN Family Services Inc.
WIN Family Services is a unique organization whose acronym surpasses its generalized meaning. WIN (What I Need) goes beyond basic needs by exemplifying Core Principals (Godliness, Excellence, Teamwork and Service) and utilitizing the Family Strengthening Model. This combination encompasses each youth, foster parent, employee and partners in the community with the same level of care, commitment, consistency and compassion. As a current employee with WIN, I am honored to work alongside collegues, leaders and a CEO that truly defies what a typical organization looks like. Mr. AL Laws, CEO always greets you with a friendly smile, and personally welcomes you to share any current challenges or innovative ideas on a regular basis. A unique concept coming from an extremely busy CEO! All in all, a wonderful place to work and thrive in.
WIN Family Services, Inc. and WIN Team, LLC are amazing corporations to have had the privilege to work at for over six years. Their dedication to youth and families is deep and genuine. The work is demanding and frustrating at times at this agency, but the agency provides extensive training and is very supportive of their staff. They go above and beyond to make the staff feel valued for their contributions to the work the agency does.
Review from Guidestar
My name is Ariel Johnson I'm a former foster youth and being apart of the Win Team has been an amazing turn in my life the things that they do and continue to do for the children and adults is outstanding I am proud to say I am and still apart of the Win Team they made me the Woman I am today they never gave up on me that's a family you want to be apart of a loving family and the service they provide is beyond anything that I can describe I will forever be apart of a big Family!
WIN is doing amazing work in the community. Working in the child welfare field, WIN is widely regarded as a reputable foster care agency that takes pride in their work and truly puts the children's needs first.
We are humbled by your kind words!
I worked for WIN from 1995 - 1998 as a Counselor, and the experience changed my life for the better. I was in my early 20s, fresh out of college at the time. I learned how love shown through persistence and dedication can really impact people's lives in ways that you can never imagine. I have seen a number of youth (who are now adults) that I helped to serve back then, and they have tremendous testimonies about how WIN staff never gave up on them. Fortunately, WIN teaches its staff to not look for the fruit of our actions, so each time I have the opportunity to interact with a family who I worked with in thepast, it's an absolute treat.
I have been employed with WIN Family Services for over 5 years. From the day I started working at WIN, I have been amazed at the way that WIN operates. WIN staff are truly among the most dedicated people I have ever met. WIN's core values of Godliness, Excellence, Teamwork, and Service really exemplify what WIN stands for. I feel blessed to be able to work with such an inspiring organization. The dedication from WIN staff to the clients is beyond the normal scope of client dedication. WIN staff is truly dedicated to ensuring that the clients needs are met, no matter how far the reach to meet that need.
WIN is truly blessed to have you and your dedication!!!
I gave WIN Family Service, Inc. (5) stars because they did and continue to super-exceed my expectations. You may not believe this however, I really don't think that I will be able to put my true feelings in words. However, I will try to come close! I have been affiliated with WIN for many many years. First, as a co-labor or another youth program provider, assisting WIN in providing quality services to the youth within our communities. Than, later down the road, I found myself needing to knock on WIN's door for a inside position with the company. I had NO idea as to what I was about to embark into. I believed that God was using them to bless me so that I could pay my bills and make good on my outside debt. I quickly found out that "we had our plans and God has the MASTER PLAN". I can describe most of my experience with WIN in three (3) words "Wow, Awesome and Wonderful".
Let me share one of the ways I was blessed by WIN. In the corporate world, in normal situations, once you leave a company the training and or mentoring ceases. That wasn't or is not today, my experience with WIN. They really took me in and I am still in. It's currently October of 2014, I resigned July of 2013 and they are still helping me become more skillful and effective in my craft. If that isn't dedication, I don't know what is! An this is being established from 700 miles. I leave in Atlanta Georgia and they're in Baltimore MD.
Prior to being on the inside, I've always believed that WIN was sincere about their service to our youth but, after becoming an employee, I really saw the genuine passion that they lived by. By the way, there Core principle were: G.E.T.S = Godliness, Excellence, Teamwork and Service. Nothin' more, and definitely nothin' less!!!!! But because of time, I would just like to say, I nominate or recommend W.I.N for whatever you may be making this inquiry for. AMEN
Thank you for your kind words- we are honored to still work with you!
I have worked for WIN Family Services for 2 years now and I can truly say that I have been blessed beyond imagine. Working at WIN has helped me to not only become a more effective and skillful professional but it has also helped to me to grow spiritually and personally. Al Laws is a CEO unlike any most people have experienced, his passion for improving lives and strengthening family permeates throughout the agency as he is constantly empowering staff and challenging us to be our best. There aren't many places where your CEO cares just as much about your family as he does his bottom line, but Mr. Laws finds ways to reward staff and our families on a regular basis. There are many nonprofits out there that are doing great things in the community but trust me WIN Family Services Inc. is one of the best.
We are so blessed to work with you!!!
I have been working with WIN for almost two years and my experience has been nothing short of amazing. The hearts that these people have, no matter if they are the workers, parents, management, ANYONE- go above and beyond what is asked or expected to ensure the health and well-being of members of our community. They are truly concerned with the needs of each individual they work with and will stop at nothing to ensure those needs are met. As for me, as soon as I walked through the doors of their Baltimore office, I completely fell in love with the culture and knew this is where I wanted to be. I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with such a great organization.
Thank you for your dedication to WIN!
Before I personally experienced the culture at WIN Family Services, I had an opportunity to watch as a woman who I love and respect as a mother, friend and human services professional was able to work with and through WIN Family Services as a foster mom for many years. I have personally watched her labor of love impact the lives of many children, and even my own. When I was ready to reach beyond the level of service in the community that I had previously known, I knew that WIN Family Services would be the organization that I could grow with and be confident in to reach new heights in my career. I feel so very blessed to have the opportunity to work with an organization that truly works every day to change lives and strengthen families with a holistic approach to wellness.
WIN is so blessed to have you on board with us!
WIN Family Services is a phenomenal organization. The work they do for the children and families is truly special! From my experience, everyone at WIN really has great passion in what they do and will do whatever it takes for these children in need. With a great leader and staff, WIN is an amazing organization that will continue to strive and be great!
I have been associated professionally and socially with the management and staff of Win Family Services for the last fifteen years. Professionally, I have sat in on team meetings where the sole focus of every attendee was to understand his or her role in achieving the organizational goal. I was impressed by the types and scope of the questions proposed by the team members. After the meeting, I have witness team members deliver individualized services proposed in the meeting, through their community outreach. Win has a staff member with a graduate degree who was once a recipient of Win’s services. Most importantly, I know teenagers who have benefited from the services provided by Win since their birth. These young adults are leading positive productive lives that might not have been the outcome without Win. Win Family Services approaches the problems affecting poor families with sober deliberation and they are effective in achieving positive change one family at a time.
