March 2017

Happy Spring family!

The weather is finally warming up (and hopefully staying that way)! We're embarking on a whole new adventure this season and we're excited that you all are joining us for each step of the way. We've just hit a huge milestone in WIN's history and we can't wait to share with you all about it. 

WINning for 25 Years


March 25, 2017 marked a momentous occasion for WIN Family Services. Along with 350 guests, Al and Aisha Laws celebrated the 25th anniversary of our beloved organization. From its inception in 1992, WIN has grown from a mentoring program to a human services organization comprised of a therapeutic foster care program, community mental health program, and a substance abuse program. Employees, foster parents, partners, and family from all over came to celebrate 25 years of Godliness, Excellence, Teamwork, and Service for all of Maryland. The beautiful dinner reception was held at Martin’s West in Windsor Mill, Maryland with guest performances from local artists Maysa and MJ. CEO, Al Laws honored employees, board members, and family for their enduring faith and support of the organization through the Mover and Shaker Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award. The night was not complete without everyone gathering on the dance floor to celebrate their success and triumphs over the last two decades. WIN Family Services is so blessed and so excited to have been able to celebrate and we can’t wait to see what the next 25 years has in store.

Celebrating our Social Workers

Social work has been named one of the world's most demanding and stressful positions and it's no wonder why an entire month has been set aside to celebrate such amazing and compassionate individuals. March is National Social Work month and WIN Family Services wanted to be sure our social workers felt the love and appreciation they truly deserve. Our social work staff was treated to a spa day and refreshments at Fortis Institute - complete with facials and massages befitting of the professionals in need of a day of relaxation. We are so thankful for the around the clock work our social workers do for our clients and families. You model what true love really means. Please join us in thanking a social worker in your life today... and every day! 

A Day to Give Back

WIN staff gathered this month for a special event focused on giving back to the community. Director of Family Services, Lauren Capel gathered staff from Baltimore and Prince George’s County to take part in a “Feed the Homeless” Day. For an entire afternoon, staff provided food and blankets to over a hundred of Baltimore’s less fortunate. WIN staff also participated in prayer circles and clothing donations.  “It was an awesome and humbling opportunity for us to show God's love through service…it was a huge success,” shares Ms. Capel. We look forward to the next event!

WIN Life-ers!
