New Visions Clients Knit for Babies

Our clients at Turning Point Foundation’s New Visions Center in Ventura are some of the sweetest, most generous women we know!  They love knitting and crocheting projects to donate, particularly when it comes to babies.

One of Turning Point’s staff members recently had a baby, and our clients made these cozy knits for him.

Prototypes Baby Blankets

One of our clients at Prototypes Women’s Center crocheted these beautiful baby blankets.  We know her little one will be nice and cozy in these.  And these blankets are all the more special since they were handmade with love and care.

Holiday Donations 2016

A major part of Knitting in Recovery’s program is to be of service to others.  It strengthens our community, focuses attention outward, and brings a sense of satisfaction to know that you are helping someone else.

This year for the holidays, men and women from Knotty Knitters of Anacapa, BookEnds Knitters in Ojai, and Knitting in Recovery clients at New Visions, Project Understanding, and Prototypes all participated in knitting and crocheting for charity.

The knitters’ gorgeous goods were sent to Help for Ojai, Ojai Valley Family Shelter, Our Place Shelter (Ventura), Tender Life Maternity Home (Ventura), Veterans Home (Ventura), and Shelters for Abused Women and Children in Alaska.

We hope that everyone who received these gifts feels safe, warm, and loved when they wear them, knowing that someone from Knitting in Recovery cares about their health and well-being.
