In our backyard stands Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, a maximum security women's prison. Through our partnership with Hour Children, we are able to help support these women and their families. We provide lunches on a regular basis for the children who come to visit their mothers. We also collect clothes, toys, videos, books, etc. for the Family Center. Families from BCC are also encouraged to 'host' children for a week in the summer while they visit their moms in prison.
Knit for Kids is a ministry of World Vision. They request that groups gather together to knit, crochet or stitch together sweaters for a World Vision project which sends them around the world - including the US- for children who need them.
They meet locally here at BCC on the first and third Thursday of each month.
