The Children’s Healing Institute installed its Children’s Memory Field at Whole Foods Market in Wellington on Sunday, April 6. The Memory Field features 122 oversized blue balloons, which represent the 122 children who died in Florida in one year as a result of abuse or neglect.
Throughout the month of April, the Children’s Memory Field will move to different locations throughout Palm Beach County, including Whole Foods Wellington, the Boynton Beach Police Department and the South Florida Fairgrounds, to stand as a symbol of the Children’s Healing Institute’s refusal to forget these innocent children.
The Children’s Healing Institute is an established nonprofit serving more than 3,000 South Florida families a year by providing solutions to child abuse, raising awareness and strengthening families facing crisis, challenge and change through education and support.
Institute programs focus on reducing stress, promoting health, building parenting skills and strengthening support systems. The institute is comprised of credentialed and experienced professionals, trained volunteers and leadership dedicated to the agency’s mission. It collaborates with national and local nonprofits, schools, hospitals, medical professionals, local businesses and law enforcement agencies.
