I first came in contact with WEAVE at a teen domestic violence event. They were informative, resourceful, and effective. Since them I have seen them at various community events bringing awareness to the problem of Domestic Violence. They have even been on our community local TV channel to bring awareness to this topic! They are top notch in helping people understand the dynamics of intimate partner abuse.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

community events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

improve their website to highlight more of what they do in the community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they are clear and understandable and provide great resources

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

helpful and friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue to educate the community and provide even better resources and services.

Ways to make it better...

They had a bigger venue to spread there message.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

they specialize in providing services that some of the other organizations don't such as legal assistance. They need more funds to continue to be able to do this.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
