Threads of Compassion is an opportunity to offer comfort to recent survivors of sexual violence. The idea is simple – anyone whose life has been affected by sexual assault or abuse (either through a direct experience or through supporting a survivor) is welcome to knit or crochet a scarf that will be given to a survivor of sexual violence when they enter the hospital for emergency treatment.
In January of 2010, we began working with the Oklahoma City YWCA to provide this service.
You can help! There is an ongoing need for completed scarves as well as materials.
