Pike County shows support for a very important month. If you've been walking around Milford or Matamoras you might have noticed blue ribbons decorating the trees.
The colorful display is brightening up the county for autism awareness month. Organizers from Pike Autism Support Services say they're trying to shift the conversation to become more about autism acceptance instead.
"With that we've seen a change in our community. There's more individuals with autism being employed here. Our organization has done more to support social and recreational events for the autism and special needs community," Jeanne-Marie Passaro, Executive Director, said.
Their next goal is to provide autism action, which they hope will help with healthcare and housing.
