Voices Against Violence/Laurie's House

After learning that we would also donate yarn, etc. Laurie's House started a new healing group. "We are so grateful and so excited to launch a new crochet / healing group. I love the calming, grounding, meditative quality of crocheting! I'm very willing to teach any survivor who would like to learn. I will certainly keep you posted on how it's coming along."
