Inspired by Washburn's mission, attendees at ACG's February 26 event chose Washburn out of five bold winners to receive the "Boldest of the Bold" Award, with the honor being determined by a live vote.
The first annual award competition recognized bold strategies that improved and transformed the quality of life in Minnesota. Washburn was heralded for its bold response to the community's growing mental health needs and its plans to build a one-of-a-kind mental health center for children.
The agency is in the midst of a $21 million capital campaign, "Creating Space for Young Minds to Heal and Grow" to raise funds to construct a new, expanded healing environment that will serve more Twin Cities children and families.
