History

The 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.
