Knit the Rainbow is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in NYC. Our mission is to collect handmade knit and crochet winter garments from volunteers around the country and distribute them to houseless and at-risk LGBTQ+ youth.

There are upwards of 500,000 homeless LGBTQ+ youth living in the United States. Many of these youth are living without consistent shelter and protection from the brutal winter months faced by many of our cities. That's where Knit the Rainbow (KtR) comes in! We collect handmade winter garments like scarves, beanies, socks, gloves, mittens, ear warmers, sweaters, and more and distribute them to the youth we serve through our community partnerships. In addition, we hope to build a community for these youth by offering them classes in crafting, creating a safe space for them to gather and create together, and more!

Since our founding in June 2020, we have distributed almost 7,500 to youth around NYC and this year we hope to distribute 5,000 more
