24-Hour Domestic Abuse Hotline: 208.343.7025


Corporate Pillars Show Support in Many Ways

24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

One of the great resources that we receive from our Corporate Pillars is the gift of volunteering. The WCA has various needs that could not be met without the help of staff members from our amazing Corporate Pillars. These needs range from the human resources department, where Hawley Troxell’s Kara Heikkila assists us, to our court advocacy program, where several local attorneys offer pro-bono work. Individuals like Terry Anderson, Audrey Numbers, and Holland & Hart’s Tom Codevilla and Melissa Starry volunteer their time to help our clients with legal issues, such as divorce with minor children or interstate custody.

The WCA Court Advocate Manager, Maureen Wishkoski, is extremely grateful for all the support from Corporate Pillars within the court advocacy program: “One estimate is that financial abuse occurs in 98% of domestic violence cases, making access to attorneys almost impossible for most victims. Donating time to offer free, trauma-informed services provides even more than sound legal information; it also reminds a victim that she is not alone, that people believe her, and that there are people willing to offer help and support.”

Thomas Codevilla of Holland & Hart said, “The legal work I did at the WCA was the most meaningful of my career. Helping women navigate a system that so often fails them was immensely rewarding and humbling; I cannot recommend volunteering at the WCA strongly enough.”

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to both Hawley Troxell and Holland & Hart for their wonderful donation of time, knowledge and skill. Their support strengthens the WCA’s mission of offering safety, healing and freedom from abuse for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
