Our lives and our communities are changed by suicide too often. It leaves family and friends with several "what if" questions in their minds; "What if I could have been there?" or "What if I could have been that one voice that saved this life?"
The Yellow Ribbon Project was formed to help answer those questions.
Through the Yellow Ribbon Project, people in the Dodge City community are coming forward to help prevent suicides and to care for suicide survivors. The Yellow Ribbon Project is gaining momentum and more people and organizations are supporting the effort in recent months. Some of the major supporters include the Ford County Sheriff’s Department, The Alley, and Dr. James Moffitt's Family Pratice office among others.
To get involved with this ongoing effort, residents are invited to come to a candlelight prayer vigil at 7 p.m. Nov. 30th at Wright Park.
Support groups are being formed at The Alley and Dr. Moffitt's office.
According to a release from project organizers, fundraisers will be taking place in the near future. All funds will go toward transporting at-risk people to treatment and providing counseling services.
