We Need Sweats. Can You Help?
WEAVE is the only organization in Sacramento County that accompanies every rape victim to provide support during evidentiary exams. A victim’s clothing is collected as evidence during this process. You can ensure that every rape victim has clothing to wear home from the hospital. Help a survivor heal by making a donation from WEAVE’s Wish List today.
