The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Promotes
Statewide Efforts to Reduce Child Abuse and Neglect

“Strong Families, Safe Kids” is this year’s theme.

individuals and communities can modify and use to support local
child abuse prevention efforts.

Child abuse Prevention and its Blue Ribbon Compaign began in 1989
as a Virginia grandmother’s tribute to her grandson who died as a
result of abuse.  She tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her
car as a way to remember him and to alert her community
to the tragedy of child abuse.  Since that time, the blue
ribbon has become a nationwide symbol for the fight against
child abuse and neglect.
