ESCAPE
SAFE in Hunterdon's Mission is to empower adult and child survivors of domestic and sexual abuse, while collaborating with our community to prevent violence and create positive social change.

These drawings and writings were turned into a beautiful piece of art by volunteers at SAFE in Hunterdon from
both New jersey and Florida. The power behind these images and writings inspired a poem by the quilter:

The Quilt of Life

A quilt is made of many pieces, fabrics rich and of varied textures
All stitched together to form a beautiful, pleasing gift to the heart and soul
And warmth beyond measure, truly a treasure

We, like the most exquisite quilt, are made and put together
With loving care by our mutual God above, all meant to blend together
We are many colors, textures and varieties

And oh, that we could meld together like the quilt with all that tender care
How warm, safe and lovely this earth would be
Wouldn’t that be something to see…

By Josie Wiggins, a piece of life’s quilt
