Safe House Alliance for Non-Violence

Boulder, Colorado

In 2021 SPAN received over 9,000 calls to their hot line.  They provided 7,173 safe nights for 148 adults and 49 children".   "With the fast spread of Omicron, limiting exposure and social distancing has never been more important. We have kept our Shelter safely open and partnered with a few hotels to provide additional space for clients. Our clients’ locations remain confidential and safe. SPAN advocates have adapted their support systems to accommodate the increased space between clients."

Pet blankets may be knitted, crocheted or sewn, but must be washable. Knit or crocheted blankets should be a tight weave, fairly thick (use several strands together or a single strand of #5 or #6 bulky yarn.) Suitable fabrics are denim, flannel, heavy cotton with batting in between layers and stitched from corner to corner so the batting doesn't bunch up when washed.
