Dedication to WEAVE Since 2006

WEAVE is the primary provider of crisis intervention services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Sacramento County.

We helped to launch and now consult for WEAVE Legal, a provider of free and low-cost legal services for eligible domestic violence victims.

We developed a curriculum for WEAVE’s complimentary workshops to the public on topics ranging from domestic violence restraining order applications and divorce paperwork to understanding the child custody process and advocating for your children.

Our legal team has sponsored and participated in various fundraisers and awareness campaigns, including Walk a Mile in Her Shoes and Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
