The WCA was honored to be offered an office at the Ada County Courthouse in August. In addition to the Court Advocacy services provided at our Washington Street location, our dedicated staff will have office hours on the fourth floor of the courthouse Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 10 am – 4:30 pm. The courthouse location allows our staff to be more available for accompaniment to emergency civil protection order (CPO) hearings, assistance at the time of filing a CPO, providing legal referrals for CPO’s and/or family law matters, as well as offer support during the court process.

The WCA has a long-standing partnership with the Ada County Court system and is involved with most protection order proceedings from the beginning — providing basic information about the process to being a source of emotional support for the petitioner(s) before, during and after proceedings take place.
