WEAVE operates an emergency shelter program where female survivors of domestic violence and their children can escape unsafe homes. Male survivors of domestic violence are placed at a different location.

WEAVE’s Safehouse Program provides a secure refuge for survivors of violence to receive:

* Temporary emergency housing
* Emergency transportation, food and clothing
* Transitional housing for clients who complete Safehouse program
* Advocacy, assistance and referrals
* Crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy and case management
* Child abuse identification and intervention
* School advocacy for school age children
* Medical advocacy and mental health referrals
* Mother’s support groups
* Evening support groups
* Children’s program with assessment and structured play group
* Legal information and referrals
* Other important resources and community referrals

If you are in the greater Sacramento area, you can access Safehouse services by calling WEAVE’s 24-Hour Support and Information Line.


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 women and children – more than doubling our old capacity.
