Court Advocates

Going to court to get a restraining order can be critical to a survivor’s safety but the process can be intimidating for anyone who is unfamiliar with the legal system.

How you help Without volunteers, we would not be able to offer many of our essential services including court advocacy, hotline response and free child care. Your support is vital to ensure that we continue to help survivors of domestic violence regain safety, well-being and self-sufficiency.
