Working Together to Strengthen our Community
Did you know the WCA assisted with 588 of the 654 civil protection orders filed with in Ada County in 2014? The WCA is able to enhance our Court Advocacy services thanks to FACES Family Justice Center. The WCA employs two Victim Advocates at FACES, who provide safety planning and protection order assistance. A Domestic Violence Court Case Manager who provides victim advocacy and case management to clients going through court proceedings is also located at FACES thanks to a grant from the office of violence against women.
FACES also provides a variety of services domestic and/or sexual violence survivors may need that the WCA doesn’t provide, such as forensic exams and basic healthcare. By having so many important services under one roof, and in such close proximity to the WCA and the courthouse, clients are given easier access to services they may need as they journey down their own path to safety, healing and freedom.
