Victims Empowerment Support Team (VEST)
The Victims Empowerment Support Team (VEST) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency in Solano County that provides resources and support to all Victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
The mission of VEST is to minimize violence against all victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault in Solano County and to improve their quality of life through education, support, advocacy, and empowerment.
VEST’s goal is to inspire every life of those it serves – women, men, teens, and children – who are survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. We do this through empowerment and support services. The agency’s approach was influenced by the recognition that violence is a social issue that affects far more than the individuals that are seeking services; the impact is felt community and generational-wide. If left unaddressed, violence will hinder the strength of the entire community and impede on the positive outcomes of a brighter future. VEST is dedicated to addressing community problems by conveying mobilizing partnership within Solano County. Services include:
• Domestic Violence Restraining Order Application Assistance
• Court Accompaniment
• Case Management
• Safety Planning
• Domestic Violence Education Workshops
• Peer Counseling
• Support Groups
• Housing Assistance
• Victims of Crime Application Assistance
• Professional Services
• Referral Services
• 40-Hour Domestic Violence Counselor Training
