The young women of SCO come to SEW!!!


The joy of doing filing is discovering old papers – Sue Rock Originals received a thank you from Safe Horizon’s Director FIVE years ago. It has been five years that we have been collecting fabric donations, meeting wonderful people and most of all servicing women who have left their homes to explore a new life of peace.

Most recently we had an opportunity to work with young women who were currently homeless and living in a residence run by SCO Family of Services. According to their website “

SCO Family of Services has been caring for New York’s most vulnerable children and families for more than a century. Each year, we touch the lives of more than 30,000 people at 122 locations throughout New York City and Long Island.

Among our many services, SCO helps families devastated by poverty, children suffering from abuse and neglect, children and adults with special needs, and homeless families. SCO also provides innovative after-school programs and schools for children and teens with special needs. Additionally, SCO runs three neighborhood community service programs located in Brooklyn and Queens that provide a comprehensive range of services to sustain and nurture the family, thus ensuring the well-being of the community’s children.

The girls who came last Saturday came to offer Community Service and they got MORE than they bargained for – After light cleaning, they settled down and ALL LEARNED HOW TO SEW FOR THE FIRST TIME!!
