October 2015: Mary Kerrigan, Executive Director of Step Up Ventura, accepts quilts made by Ventura Modern Quilt Guild members during their October Meeting. Step Up Ventura’s mission is “to stop the cycle of homelessness and trauma, strengthen parent-child relationships, and promote the well-being of homeless children and their families by providing attachment-based, trauma-informed all day therapeutic infant and toddler care and preschool for homeless children aged zero through five.”
Our 2014 quilts were donated to Children’s Services Auxiliary of Ventura County.
