A domestic violence shelter on Chicago's South Side received a gift that's designed to help children.

A ribbon was cut Thursday at Family Rescue for its Nature Explore Classroom, an outdoor park designed to help children who have witnessed abuse in their homes.

Research shows that nature buffers the impact of life stress on children and helps them deal with adversity.
