To date we have had some great success with encouraging both residential and businesses to become Block Parents, an important part of a safe and caring community, and we hope to continue building the number of participating households and businesses.

The familiar red and white Block Parent sign is a symbol that indicates a caring adult is available to help, should the need arise. The sign was first seen in windows in London, Ontario in 1968, where the Program began.
