Children’s Safe Harbor Pinwheel Art Installation in Magnolia
Representing the number of every child served by Children’s Safe Harbor in 2020 for sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect, human trafficking and trauma, 2,322 pinwheels were installed this morning on April 22 on the front grounds of the Kroger grocery store in Magnolia at the intersection of FM 1488 and FM 2978 in Magnolia. The Pinwheel Art installation will remain on display all day for public awareness.
This is an annual event in recognition of April being Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month where community leaders and members of the county’s child abuse multi-disciplinary team were in attendance.
Children’s Safe Harbor is one of children’s advocacy centers in Texas that coordinate with law enforcement and CPS to support the investigation and healing of children who have been sexually assaulted, severely physically assaulted, sexually trafficked or exploited or who have witnessed violent crimes such as rape, murder and domestic violence.
Since 2013, the Pinwheel Art Display was previously installed on the grounds of the Alan B. Sadler Administrative Building in downtown Conroe the majority of the time. In 2019 and 2020, Children’s Safe Harbor brought the Pinwheel Art Display to The Woodlands on the grounds of the Montgomery County Ed Chance Courthouse Annex on Lake Robbins Drive to celebrate the commitment across south Montgomery for the children’s advocacy center program. In 2021, Pinwheel Art Display moved to front grounds of the Kroger grocery store in Magnolia at the
intersection of FM 1488 and FM 2978 and will move across Montgomery County in future years.
