Blue Ribbon Campaign


April is Child Abuse Awareness Month…

But intentional injury, exploitation and serious neglect happen to thousands of vulnerable children every day of the year.

Since 1972, Home Start has delivered proven strategies to end the cycle of child abuse in the home and community.

Our services:

  • reduce stress on the family before a potentially dangerous situation escalates,
  • strengthen parents’ ability to respond in a healthy, positive way to their child’s developmental needs,
  • and address the need for intensive therapy for children who have experienced traumatic abuse or chronic neglect.

The Blue Ribbon is the nationally-recognized symbol of Child Abuse Prevention. For a donation of $25 or more per month, you can help Home Start prevent child abuse in the San Diego community. In appreciation of your support, you will receive a Blue Ribbon lapel pin to show you care about keeping kids safe and are doing something about it in your community.
