    WEAVE sought to reach 20-30 unique youth throughout the grant year. Due to the drop-in nature of the space, WEAVE achieved 200 duplicated youth participating throughout the year. Additionally, WEAVE created an intervention/outreach toolkit for homeless LGBT youth with an action kit on best practices and art intervention strategies, and a conversation deck on discussing sexual exploitation and violence.

    Data was collected via survey and focus groups to identify themes and barriers to youth at risk-for or who had experience sexual exploitation and violence to receive services.
