Organization Details


Next Move and WEAVE have teamed up to provide shelter for women and families who are victims of domestic violence.

Both organizations are committed to ensuring those in vulnerable living environments, including homelessness, move toward self-sufficiency and stability. Next Move has space from a program that they no longer had funding for, and WEAVE has program funding but needs space to house their clients.

"Next Move's mission footprint in Sacramento will be broadened by its relationship with WEAVE," said Tricia Rosenbaum, Executive Director of Next Move. "In our region, it is well known that there is a significant gap in affordable housing availability. By partnering on this project, we will be able to help additional clients that are in need of support - this is such a great win-win for our organizations." WEAVE will use the property owned by Next Move to house one or more families while they participate in WEAVE programs, and work toward a new life and a stable housing situation.
Program Successes
- Goodwill Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada, a partner of Next Move, invested over $50,000 to refurbish the facility and prepare it for occupancy, which will be just after the start of the new year.
- The success of this program is measured by the women who will have a chance to build a new life after domestic abuse.
- This success is also about collaboration and coming together to share resources for the greater good of our clients.
Our permanent supportive housing programs provide subsidized housing and supportive services to individuals and families. These programs provide case management to stabilize households effected by homelessness, chronic homelessness, and multiple and severe disabilities with the of goal of increased stability and self-reliance.

Program Successes

- Though participants are allowed to stay in the program for life, many clients have voluntarily left the program in order to give their spot in the program to families in greater need.
- Countless adults have obtained full-time employment, gone back to school, received better healthcare due to personal milestones, and have reunified with children lost to Child Protective Services matters.

Program Successes
Casa de Esperanza has become a launchpad for many men and women that, without assistance, would run the risk of relapsing back into homeless. With the stability and support that Casa de Esperanza provides, residents are able to better maintain their physical and mental health, create healthy habits and living skills, and set goals for their future.
Started as a VISTA project in 2011, the CRDC has grown to serve over 400 households each month. The Community Donation Center is open to guests Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. to provide clothing, shoes, household, toys, bedding, towels, and other donated items free of charge to program participants and those living in the community who have a need.
