Blue Ribbon Success
One person can make a difference
Bonnie Finney did in 1989, when she learned that her beloved grandson had died of injuries inflicted by his parents. In grief and outrage, she tied a blue ribbon to her antenna as a way to remember “the bruised and battered body of her grandson” and alert the community to the tragedy of child abuse. One simple act by one person created a lasting symbol for thousands who have since dedicated themselves to preventing such tragic and needless deaths.
Together we can do even more
Despite budget shortfalls and public apathy, CASA of Harrison County has managed to provide a Court Appointed Special Advocate for every child in our area who needs one. How? By working together with a community that understands its future is determined by the kind of adult every child in it becomes.
Join us and you’ll understand that the unique gift you give a child is actually a gift to yourself.
