 In 1989, the Blue Ribbon Campaign was started to memorialize children who have been affected by abuse or neglect. The blue ribbon is widely recognized as a national symbol of child abuse prevention.  Starting in April, look for the Family Advocacy Program workshops, seminars, and outreach/information table to better assist our community.  This year’s theme is “Strong communities strengthen families”.  For more details, please call  912 767-2882.
