Domestic Violence Services

What to do if you are experiencing domestic violence:

 

  • Talk to Someone:
    • WEAVE offers individual and group counseling – available to all survivors of intimate partner / domestic violence: male, female, teen, lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and queer.
    • WEAVE also offers individual victim witness and sliding scale private pay counseling for youths ages 4 to 17 who have witnessed domestic violence.

 

  • You Are Not Alone. To access domestic violence counseling services, we ask that you attend a Triage Assessment session. The triage assessment process involves talking to a WEAVE Advocate who helps assess your level of danger, helps you prepare a safety plan and provides referrals for appropriate services.

Individual & Group Counseling

WEAVE’s counseling program for survivors of domestic violence provides a safe environment for discussion and the tools necessary to improve self-esteem, self-determination and safety.

Group Counseling sessions are a structured support group providing a combination of information and a safe space to share your experiences. Each week there is a different topic that relates to dealing with domestic violence, including anger, boundaries, communication, non-abusive relationships, and more. To register for group counseling, come in for a triage intake session. Individual Counseling sessions are available as well.

History

The new Safehouse was constructed on land owned by WEAVE adjacent to the existing Safehouse. The 12,000 square foot facility tripled the size of the old Safehouse. It includes three residential wings featuring family suites for increased privacy. The new facility is capable of housing 80 adults and children – more than doubling our old capacity.

Children’s Counseling program

WEAVE’s Children’s Counseling program offers individual and group counseling for children between the ages of 4 ½ to 17 years old who have witnessed domestic violence. Children will learn what domestic violence is and be assured that they are not alone and most importantly, that they are not responsible for the violence.
