The Grateful Garment Project
The Vision of The Grateful Garment Project is that no victim of sexual violence in our community should ever experience further suffering due to a lack of clothing to wear home after receiving services from a Sexual Violence Service Provider. They also provide additional resources (clothing, toiletries, etc.) to safe houses, shelters, and group homes for victims who do not have a safe place to return.
