In Their Own Words

“Children’s Home + Aid is incredibly proud to partner with IICF and values their longstanding support for some of the most vulnerable children and families we serve in Illinois. IICF funding current supports our Butterfly Project, which addresses an unmet need in Bloomington and the surrounding McLean County area for comprehensive, trauma-informed mental health care for children under 12 and their families who have experienced domestic, family or community violence. Research has shown that the younger the child, the higher the impact exposure to violence and trauma has on the developing brain. The Butterfly Project’s main goal is to strengthen parent-child bonds which have been disrupted by trauma as well as eradicate the social conditions which contribute to violence against children and families.”
