Moments in our History: Advocacy Moves to Courthouse

1997 was significant in Family Shelter Service history. That’s the year our court advocacy program moved to the DuPage County Courthouse to make these services more accessible to victims who are seeking legal remedies. At the courthouse, people who are affected by domestic abuse and who are seeking an Order of Protection can get assistance from court advocates in navigating the OP application process. Our advocates will even accompany them to court to provide moral support and make them feel more secure.
