A Common Thread has been a wonderful addition to our program! A Common Thread has two main components: weavers offer instruction to survivors of violence to create their own items to adorn their new homes; and, items made by the weavers are sold to support our Fresh Start Fund which provides financial support for those seeking independent, violence-free living. Rugs, placemats, wall hangings and bags are just a few of the items offered for sale. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for A Common Thread (we can train you!) contact Frances Richardson, our Art Therapist, at 540.463.7861.
Specialized outreach services and educational programs are offered to LGBTQ survivors, Latina/o survivors and African-American survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
For more information on accessing those services, contact Ashley Perry at 540.463.7861.
