Join us in the fight against child abuse.
Join us this April as we recognize the children affected by abuse or neglect in our county. In 2018, 442 Galveston County children were in care for abuse or neglect. We want to have 442 ribbons on our wall to represent each child. Add your name to this wall by sponsoring a ribbon.
308 ribbons sponsored!
