What is WEAVE?
WEAVE (Working to End Assault and Violence for Everybody) is a collaboration of service providers in Kent County that specialize in disability services and sexual violence advocacy.

The five collaboration organizations involved in WEAVE are the YWCA West Central Michigan, MOKA, Spectrum Community Services, Thresholds and Hope Network Developmental and Community Services. In addition to the five WEAVE agencies, Pine Rest, public and family guardians and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) participated in the creation of WEAVE resources.

The mission of WEAVE is to examine and enhance systems for serving individuals with I/DD to reduce the risk of sexual violence and to better serve and empower individuals with I/DD who have survived sexual assault/abuse.
