“Families United” for Fun
On August 24, Families United ended the summer with what has become its traditional celebration of families. Hundreds of children, along with parents and caregivers, enjoyed a fun festival atmosphere at Schenley Park. Free food, horse rides, games, crafts, and musical entertainment made for a great way to celebrate families who have been reunified throughout the year, and to recognize the strength of families in our community.
The event was sponsored by the DHS Office of Children, Youth and Families (CYF) with in-kind support from DHS-contracted and local-human-services provider agencies and retail establishments. This year’s event, with the theme “We Are Family,” was dedicated to longtime event volunteer Ella Mae “Cookie” Hillman.
