Each year Windwood Family Services has the opportunity to touch the lives of not only the boys on our farm but hundreds of families we serve in the community. Your year end gift will insure that we are able to touch these lives and more in the coming year. All donations are 100% tax deductible and with our 93% return to service rate, you can rest assured knowing your gift is going directly towards helping a child in crisis.
Our Impact in 2016
31 Boys completed our Residential Treatment
Program and were successfully placed with forever families; 33 boys came to live on the farm and were able to call Windwood their home.
Over 500 families achieved success through our Community Based Prevention Program. Our social workers assisted them in attaining their GED, in accessing medical care and benefits, in acquiring vocational skills that allow them to earn a living wage, and in eliminating substance abuse and domestic violence in their homes.
130 families accessed the expertise of our therapists through our Out-patient Counseling Center. Parenting skills were enhanced, issues related to anxiety, depression, and family distress were addressed and relieved, and harmony within the households were restored.
The students and staff at 2 elementary schools on the peninsula worked one on one with our therapists to alleviate problematic behaviors that disrupted the learning environment and interfered with academic achievement. Effectively keeping more kids in school.
Families are flourishing! They are engaged in making sure their children receive the love and guidance they need
Children have gained skills and confidence they need to work through academic setbacks, problematic behaviors, and past trauma.
Our waiting list is long but with your support we will continue to work towards healing each and every child who walks through our doors.
We ask that you consider making a gift to Windwood Family Services this holiday season so we may continue to touch the lives of these remarkable children and families. It truly takes a village to raise a child and we are grateful you are part of ours.
Happy Holidays from the Boys, Families and Staff of Windwood!
