The Blue Ribbon Project is a 100% volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit community organization based in Annapolis, Maryland. We are committed to both the prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect and as a support network for survivors of Child Abuse, Foster Care, and Child Sexual Assault.
We offer several programs that directly serve abused and neglected children, raise public awareness about child abuse, and programs serving adult survivors of child abuse.
Foster care is a vital and necessary part of the world we live in. To be an effective and ideal substitute parent, one must possess a multitude of strengths and skills.
Have you been considering becoming a foster care parent? If so, there is an ideal picture of what the successful substitute parent looks like.
Entering into the world of foster care is a big step for any person. The more information you have and the more you prepare, the better the experience will be for you and the child you are taking into your home.
If you would like to do something helpful for others, you may be thinking about foster care. This involves letting a child stay at your home so that he or she can be taken from a bad situation, whether the parents do drugs or are abusive. You should remember that this arrangement is not permanent like adoption, but your family will likely be permanently changed, often in a good way. There are a few things you should consider before this type of commitment.
When a child is abused or neglected, they typically miss out on opportunities afforded to other children their age. Foster Friends is a scholarship type program that assists children in foster care with enrolling in and paying for sports programs, extra curricular programs, music programs, tutoring programs, and other enrichment activities.
