NCI's Crochet program makes baby afghans for local county "Help Me Grow" programs. "Help Me Grow" is an early start, early intervention, welcome home program offered to newborns with the premise that the first three years of a child's life are the building blocks for learning and development later in life. A baby afghan made by NCI's community service inmate volunteers becomes part of a welcome home package for each newborn.
