Through the HEROES CREATE! program, the men have met every week to dye fabric, design and make print blocks, print fabrics, and patiently sew the pieces together in a design of their own. One stitch at a time, they have created beautiful works of art, developed incredible focus, and built a beautiful little community as well.
We hope you will take a few minutes to watch the video and hear them speak about the impact of this quilting project which included reducing anxiety and depression, boosting self-confidence, creating friendships, and supporting sobriety and smoking cessation efforts.
You can also see photos from the quilting exhibit here.
