The WINGS Program Visits Brookfield Zoo!
One Hope United’s WINGS program was chosen by the Brookfield Women’s Zoological Society to receive a free day at Brookfield Zoo on Saturday, June 4th. This outing included two free buses, admission to the zoo, lunch, and admission to the Zoo’s special attractions.
OHU’s WINGS program provides essential support services and counseling to high-risk teenage, single and other parents in Lake County, as they adjust to the responsibilities of parenthood. Targeting new and expecting parents, WINGS promotes positive parent-child interaction and works to enhance family functioning, build trusting relationships and teach problem-solving skills.
The field trip was a huge success! There were around 40 clients who participated and they all had an awesome time. The clients thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities, especially the dolphin show and the carousel.
Thank you Brookfield Zoo!
