WEAVE, a Sacramento-based nonprofit organization, is the primary provider of crisis-intervention services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Sacramento County, and the county’s only rape crisis center.

As part of its mission, WEAVE provides comprehensive services to victims of sex trafficking, many of whom are children. Direct service staff who work with this population are at high risk of vicarious trauma and burnout, and job turnover is high. One of WEAVE’s primary goal is to build, grow, and sustain a movement to end sex trafficking once and for all, but to do so organization staff realized they needed to provide more support for those working directly with sex-trafficking victims and survivors.
