Family Services will host the 7th Annual Butterfly Festival to benefit Fox Cities area children and families Saturday, June 18, 2016 at City Park in Downtown Appleton. All proceeds benefit the Parent Connection program of Family Services which helps to reduce child abuse and neglect through family education and positive parenting techniques.
What is the Parent Connection?
Parent Connection is a local program that offers home visitation services for first-time parents focused on child development, health issues, and family support. Additional program components include parenting workshops, family events, fatherhood programs, and teen parent mentoring. In 2014, program staff provided 3,591 home visits to 352 families with another 5,056 parents participating in educational workshops.
What is the Butterfly Festival?
Families, children, and individuals attend the event to learn about butterflies, participate in family-friendly games & activities and enjoy snacks. Near the end of the event, everyone who purchased a butterfly will participate in a group butterfly release. Last year we over 600 butterflies were released to “Help Families Fly.” All proceeds go to prevent child abuse in our community.
