Happy Pride Month! All kids deserve kind, safe, welcoming places to grow.

Your generous support changes lives.

Repeated traumas like school and community violence and the COVID-19 pandemic have intensified the shockwaves of a longstanding under-investment in children’s mental health care.

The need is rising at an alarming rate. A national crisis in children’s mental health was declared in 2021 – and we’ve not seen the peak.

Your generosity is transformative for youth battling their way through this time of tumult. Donors are fueling Washburn Center’s response to this nationwide crisis, trailblazing hope with compassionate, transformative child-centered mental health care.

We can’t do this work without you. Insurance reimbursement rates cover only 60-70% of the cost of services. Donations provide access to families who otherwise couldn’t access care, fueling programs like the sliding fee scale, therapeutic support in school settings, and in-home therapy.

You fuel this vital therapeutic support when and where kids and families need it most – in homes, clinics, schools, and throughout the community.

“Washburn is uniquely qualified to fill gigantic gaps in the system. You do such great work. Please, grow your program so more kids can be served and receive services in a timelier manner.”
