Wediko Children’s Services is a non-profit organization committed to transforming children’s lives.  Since 1934, Wediko has been providing therapeutic and educational services to children, families, and schools struggling with complex emotional, behavioral, and learning issues.

Wediko specializes in working with children with emotional and behavioral challenges.  Children who others have given up on and sometimes who have given up on themselves.  These children are experts at failing.  They have struggled to make friends, succeed at school, or have positive family time. 

At Wediko we help students find their strengths and build skills so that they can face challenges in a new way.  When students come to Wediko’s summer program, our year round residential school, or participate in our school-based services, they experience success.  That success can be so powerful.  We then work to capture that success, harness it, grow it, and use it to propel the student forward to address other challenges that they face in life.  We also work with the students families and school staff so that they are equipped to help the students access and use their new skills to solve the problems that they face.

 

Wediko strives to capture success and restore a sense of competence and hope. Your support of the 2013 Wediko Boston Marathon team enables Wediko to sustain our role as a vital resource to families, schools, and children.

 

Thank you for supporting our Marathon team!

Kurt I would have supported you with or without the mayhem. I admire your run this year as in years past. I knew I would be a few days behind even without the news of the past week. 7 years ago
