Joyful Connections of Oak Harbor is gearing up for its Orange Ribbon Campaign for Supervised Visitation Awareness Month. The orange ribbon is a symbol of supervised visitation, which is the primary service offered by Joyful Connections.
Its Oak Harbor center provides a safe haven for children to visit during parental visitation. What color signifies safety better than orange? They want the world to see the orange ribbon and take notice of the thousands of children and families in need of this service.
The need for the services offered by Joyful Connections may be due to issues related to divorce or separation, domestic violence, child abuse and neglect or other safety concerns. No matter the situation, children want and need to see their parents.
