Orders of Protection

A Safe Place's Court Advocacy Program has assisted survivors of domestic violence in the Lake County Courthouse since 1984.

Court advocates, including some bilingual, bicultural staff and trained volunteers, assist survivors in A Safe Room within the courthouse as they prepare to seek orders of protection.

These court advocates offer support to survivors in the domestic violence courtroom and also will assist survivors who choose to be witnesses during the criminal prosecution of abusers.

We also offer extensive referral and information systems to all clients through networks with numerous service providers, members of legal and medical communities, schools, churches, and local businesses.
