Therapeutic talent devEvery child has a dream for their future. DREAM is an acronym that stands for Destiny Realized Equals Achievement Maximized.

At DREAM, youth are given the opportunity to identify, appreciate, develop, and utilize their talents and gifts as a strategy for accomplishing their life goals.  WIN Family Services strives to empower the youth by nurturing their strengths, boosting self-esteem and encouraging creativity.

Art/Visual Design – Youth choose this group to experience artistic expression and learn self-management skills.  DREAM Group Leaders help youth identify positive and healthy inspirations for artistic designs.  Youth may develop comic book characters and process their personal experiences, process their own thoughts and feelings, and problem-solve and help manage the behaviors of their comic book character in response to specific issues.

Creative Writing – Youth choose this group to express themselves through poetry, songs, and short stories.  Youth are encouraged to write about their experiences, thoughts, and feelings.  Opportunities to share creative writing pieces are also an experience of this group.
Dance & Movement – Youth choose this group due to an interest in a dance genre and/or fashion.  Structured dance sessions may include jazz, ballet, hip hop, or liturgical dance.  Youth also join this group to engage in the designing, styling, and modeling of clothing.

Vocal/Instrumental – Youth choose this group to compose, write, record, and perform original songs.  This group is uniquely designed to naturally link youth to liberating artistic expression. DREAM Group Leaders suggest various academic concepts and life skill strategies for youth to include in their musical production.

Why do we do it?
WIN's Therapeutic Wellness services were developed in response to the intense needs of individuals with mental health disabilities in Maryland.  We provide psychiatric rehabilitation services (PRP) that improves the quality of life for youth and adults with mental and behavioral health challenges. The WIN Team utilizes strength-based and solution-focused training, counseling, and mentoring services designed to produce healing and restoration for individuals and families within their community.

What do we do?
PRP is a very close relative to what is known in the human service industry as Wraparound Support. Our staff directly works with individual where he or she is most comfortable- in the home or a familiar place in the community -assisting the individual with removing barriers to healthy functioning.  Psychiatric rehabilitation services are an extension to the therapeutic services an individual may be receiving currently. Our role is to support the psycho-therapeutic aspect of an individual’s mental health treatment by unpacking what happens internally, mentally, and emotionally in clients.  Our rehabilitation services enlighten youth and adults on who they are, what their strengths and needs are, and help bring resolve to psychiatric symptoms.

How do we do it?

The WIN Team PRP utilizes a unique, strength-based approach that empowers and affirms individuals at every phase of their recovery. We help youth, adults and their families identify and utilize their inherent strengths, skills, and talents. Individuals are able to successfully live and work in the community and enjoy active, healthy lives.
