Support to Children and Families Exposed to Violence

Each year millions of children are exposed to violence in their homes. Exposure to violence, particularly multiple exposures, can interfere with children’s ability to think and learn and can disrupt the course of healthy physical, emotional, and intellectual developmentThe Butterfly Project reaches the most vulnerable children and families, including families who have not traditionally engaged in family services.

Who We Serve

The Butterfly Project focuses on the unmet needs of children and families by providing home visiting services, resource and referral, case management, individual counseling, play therapy, family counseling, and other therapeutic services to children, ages 0-13, who have been impacted by violence, but are not involved in the formal child welfare system.

What We Provide
