Community Impact

Dear Willows In the Wind,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous scholarship. The educational consultant was able to help me research and place my son at a residential program where he seems to be thriving. He is eating, cooking, budgeting, and starting a part time job, working at school and attending youth groups. He will also take meds now. He was unable to function and was unsafe with us just a few weeks ago. 

I wanted to let you know how grateful I am for your support at the most painful and terrifying time of my life. The support calls, great advice and resources have helped me in my darkest moment.

—Willows Parent

How do you tell your beautiful daughter she cannot live with you? It was the worst week of my life. With the wonderful support of Willows and the staff at the school, we got through it. I know it will be a life-long challenge, but with wonderful groups like Willows, all you have to do is reach out for help. It is there.

—Sue, Willows parent

In my experience, Willows is a group of very caring, thoughtful, smart, and dedicated parents who have all dealt with extraordinarily difficult/risky parenting challenges. It is so helpful to meet other parents who have been in the same boat and to share information and support with them.

Willows was there for me many years ago when our then young teenager was in residential treatment. Willows was the ONLY place that I felt I could tell my story without judgment. I received great comfort from being in the company of others who loved their children but had come to the end of their emotional resources and ability to keep their loved ones safe. Thank you, for creating this safe space. Our teen did the hard work, and so did we. Soon to be 25 years old, she is living and working in New York and connected almost daily with all the members of our nuclear family. We celebrate the successes.

—Willows Parent

The caliber of speakers chosen by Willows has been excellent. I hope all the participants realize what a gift this is.
