From Blue to Better is a regional campaign promoting child abuse prevention and awareness. We are all responsible for keeping children safer and healthy. Learn to recognize and prevent child abuse and take action to move children in our community from blue to better.
“I’m Mayor Ashton Hayward and I’d like to invite you to join me in supporting child abuse prevention and awareness by going blue this April.
Last year there were over 4,800 reports of child abuse in Escambia County alone. Child abuse isn’t just a family issue; it is a community issue with long-term economic and mental health effects.
During the month of April, join me and other child-serving agencies in the From Blue to Better campaign by displaying a blue bow at your place of business. Take a child abuse prevention course. And most importantly report any suspected child abuse to 1-800-96-ABUSE.
The bow is blue so that our children don’t have to be. Learn more at www.frombluetobetter.org.”
