Purple Ribbon Campaign Success

January 2, 2018

Family and Children’s Services of Renfrew County in partnership with the Phoenix Center for Children and Families and Algonquin College Pembroke  would like to thank the truly amazing number of organizations that chose to support the 2017 provincial Purple Ribbon Campaign.

You have helped remind the community that we all have a role to play in protecting our local children from abuse and neglect. Thank you for collectively speaking up and sharing the message that child abuse and neglect can be prevented and that help is available.

It takes a village to keep kids safe, and we are very happy to have you in our village!
