Meeting Survivors Where They Are – Expanded Services Through Family Resource Center Partnerships

Many survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault experience barriers to accessing services. Transportation can be the most daunting barrier. Survivors may not have access to a personal car or the abuser may monitor mileage making seeking help away from the immediate neighborhood difficult. Those without a car may be faced with long commute times if relying on public transportation as well as the cost.

As part of our commitment to eliminating barriers, WEAVE continues to increase access to services by embedding WEAVE Counselors and Advocates with partner organizations. We focus on partnering with agencies that are trusted neighborhood resources that survivors can safely access. Our most effective example of this is through our partnership with eight Family Resource Centers. Survivors may go directly to these Family Resource Centers to initiate services or may be referred by the WEAVE Counseling Center if the Family Resource Center provides a more accessible location. Days and hours will vary by site and survivors can contact WEAVE’s 24/7 Support & Information Line (bilingual staff and translator services available) for additional information about accessing services at the following Family Resource Centers:
