In October, Valoris raises awareness regarding every child and youth’s right to safety and well-being and it celebrates the community that supports families and cares for children and youth across Ontario.
This year, Ontario Dress Purple Day will be held on October 24, 2018. On this day, we highlight the importance of breaking the silence and speaking out if you believe a child’s right to safety and well-being is compromised. In addition, Ontario Dress Purple Day offers an important opportunity to remind children and youth that help is available in Prescott-Russell.
All Prescott-Russell residents are invited to participate in Dress Purple Day on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, by wearing purple clothing and accessories. We also encourage businesses to decorate their front doors in purple. To help spread awareness, Break the silence purple t‑shirts are available for $10 at every Valoris service centre, located in Embrun, Hawkesbury, Rockland and Plantagenet, until October 24, 2018.
Valoris for Children and Adults of Prescott-Russell would like to take this opportunity to stress the importance of community involvement in providing children with quality services that offer protection and security while supporting their families. It is important to remember that Ontarians have a moral duty and a legal obligation to promptly report suspected abuse or neglect of a child.
To learn more about child protection and well-being, please visit www.valorispr.ca. If you have reasonable grounds to suspect that a child or youth’s rights to safety and well-being may be at risk, please contact us immediately at 1 800 675-6168.
