Celebrating more than 50 years of service!

Join us as we “Light Up the Night” and celebrate hope, healing & change!

Please join us to celebrate and fundraise for the families we serve at Safe & Sound! For more than 50 years, we have been at the forefront of providing programs that keep children safe and families strong. Support our mission at our 27th Annual “Blue Ribbon Celebration” and help us build brighter futures for our families and community!

Starting as the San Francisco Child Abuse Center in 1973, and now a statewide leader on prevention and family wellness, we are proud of the work we have done for and with children and families. Let’s shape the next 50 years of safe children and strong families…together!

The Blue Ribbon name and symbol are used to show support of child abuse prevention. When the Blue Ribbon Celebration started 27 years ago, Safe & Sound chose the name as a way to honor the vision of a future free from child abuse and neglect.
