WEAVE is Sacramento County’s Rape Crisis Center
WEAVE is Sacramento County’s sole Rape Crisis Center. Our services exist to support survivors of sexual assault – and family and friends impacted by the assault. WEAVE offers 24/7 support and free counseling to any survivor of sexual assault, regardless of when the assault occurred.
After a sexual assault, effects may persist for months and years. For this reason, crisis intervention and follow-up counseling are essential to every sexual assault survivor’s healing process.
WEAVE’s Children’s Counseling program offers free individual counseling for children ages 4 and older who have witnessed domestic violence, experienced dating violence and/or sexual assault and abuse. To apply for children’s services, please get an application from the business office or if you are currently receiving counseling services at WEAVE please ask your counselor. Once you have submitted an application to the business office, you will be contacted and scheduled for a parent intake.
Intakes for children under 12 years of age are not completed during walk-in intake hours.
To receive services, the parent applying for children’s counseling must have full legal custody or written consent from the other parent.
The primary goals of children’s counseling are to decrease isolation and self blame, build self-esteem and teach healthy coping skills so that children may deal with their experience in a safe, supportive space. Children may learn how to identify, express and manage feelings, problem solving skills, healthy conflict resolution, safety planning, healthy vs. unhealthy boundaries and assertive communication skills. Most importantly, we hope to provide a supportive environment where children learn they are not alone, it was not their fault and feel safe to express themselves and their feelings.
American Indian and Alaskan Native adults and children experience domestic and sexual violence at rates higher than any other cultural group yet culturally responsive resources are limited. To respond to this need, WEAVE works to ensure culturally-informed services for American Indian and Alaskan Native survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and sex trafficking.
