HANDS FOR HEALING, NOT HURTING —THEY’RE FOR CREATING COMFORT.
Be part of a compassionate community of quilters, crocheters, seamstresses, and knitters from around the nation, dedicated to warming the hearts and laps of children affected by abuse in the Four Corners region.
Discover Who We Are:
If you’re just getting to know us, the Four Corners Child Advocacy Center is a haven for young ones in crisis, often fondly called ‘The Nest’ in Cortez, Colorado. Our team is committed to offering advocacy, emotional support, and guidance through the legal system for children who have experienced abuse.
Our Current Needs:
In the past year, over 380 children found solace and support at The Nest. We strive to make their time with us as soothing as possible. A simple yet powerful part of this is giving each child the chance to select a handmade quilt — a gesture that often provides a cozy embrace and, in some cases, their first-ever personal belonging.
Your Contribution Matters:
We rely on the generosity of skilled quilters like you to keep this warm tradition alive and to assist us in meeting our grant requirements. What’s the benefit? Your donated quilting time translates into an in-kind contribution, aiding us financially and ensuring continued support from our benefactors.
Have a quilt ready for donation, or are you inspired to craft a new one for a child, aged from infancy to 18? We’re excited to distribute your work of art. Simply download our fillable PDF form and include it with your quilt. You can mail or personally deliver your quilt to us at 118 N. Chestnut, Cortez, CO 81321.
