The Blue Ribbon Project is currently seeking dedicated individuals to be a part of it's Leadership Team and work specifically with our Backpacks of Love and Mirah's Closet Programs. Backpacks of Love are backpacks that contain emergency essentials for children who have to be removed from an abusive or neglectful environment. Backpacks of Love are age and gender specific and cover newborns to 17 years of age. A Backpack of Love is delivered to the child when they are being removed for their safety and prior to entering a foster home or placement. Mirah's Closet continues this support by working to meet the continuing need of these children. Foster Children and Youth visit Mirah's Closet and "Shop" for free for any essential items and ongoing needs. This includes items from seasonal clothing to toiletries to toys & books.

Child adoption in Maryland occurs when a domestic placement is arranged by a child placement agency, whether a private agency or a government one. The children that can be adopted through the Department of Social Services are usually in foster care.

There are all kinds of families in this world. Some children live with both of their parents, while some live with one and visit the other. Some children might live with their grandparents, and some stay with a foster family. There are foster programs in the United States, to provide kids with a safe and caring home, when they don’t already have one.

Sexual violence is a serious problem, and it has devastating consequences. The challenge we face in making our society safer includes, an understanding of the offense risk and patterns, as well as resources. It is this knowledge that can inform our decisions on reporting, investigation, sentencing, and more.
