A Campaign to Transform Access to Children’s Mental Health

This $4 million campaign will increase access to healing therapeutic care for 5,000 children each year – so that more children and families get the mental health support they need to thrive.

Give a Gift that Strengthens the Entire Community

For some children, the burden of sadness, anxiety or depression can be overwhelming. By supporting Washburn Center, you ensure families have a resource to help children who are hurting on the inside – because our children’s mental health is as important as their physical health.

Your support makes it possible to offer compassionate therapeutic care to more than 3,900 kids and more than 11,700 family members each year. Because of this early mental health intervention, children experiencing emotional difficulties are less likely to fail academically, drop out of school or enter the juvenile justice system.

Your gift offers children a chance to grow into a strong, productive adult — which creates a stronger community for all of us.
