Welcome to the New Britain, Connecticut chapter of Threads of Compassion. We provide an opportunity for people who desire to offer comfort and support to recent victims/survivors of sexual assault. The idea is simple: anyone who has been affected by, or wants to take a stand against, sexual assault or abuse is welcome to knit or crochet a scarf, which in turn will be given to a victim/survivor of sexual violence when they enter the hospital for emergency treatment.
Our scarves are donated to the Sexual Assault Crisis Service of the YWCA New Britain, which serves clients in 43 towns and cities in and around Hartford County. Please look around our website for more information on our mission, resources, and how to donate.
