April is Child Abuse Prevention Month: Be a Pinwheel Gardener and Help Plant Hope

Bright blue pinwheels are a symbol of child abuse prevention awareness across the nation. Ralston House will be going to organizations in Jefferson, Adams, Gilpin and Broomfield counties asking them to plant gardens of pinwheels in April to serve as a beacon of hope for the children and youth in our community. 


This April, Ralston House will be planting hope with each garden purchased and put on display throughout the community.
