Overcoming Disabilities Through Knitting
One of our unique strengths is empowering individuals with disabilities by teaching them to knit. Learning to knit and following through on a project provides a great sense of success for people who often feel undervalued. Giving back is especially important to those who feel they are served rather than serving their fellow man. In addition to feeling success through completing a project, people with disabilities who have learned to knit believe they have something to offer the community. Many of the people with disabilities who learn to knit become volunteers for our signature program, and involve themselves more completely with Warmer Winters.
