  • Protection Orders

    A member of our team can help you complete a protection order form which can typically be filed the same day.

    What is a Civil Protection Order (CPO)? This is a civil court order that can help to protect you by preventing offenders from contacting you. You do not need an attorney to request a Protection Order and it is free to apply. Call Faces at (208) 986-4357 and a staff member will help you complete and file the form. You can file your protection order at Faces of Hope or at the Ada County Courthouse.

    Learn more about Protection Orders here.

  • Safety Planning

    A trained advocate will collaborate with you to customize a safety plan. Call 208-986-4357 to discuss your options and schedule a time to make a plan. 

    You can create a safety plan specific to your physical, psychological, and emotional needs. This can help you feel safe and secure in different scenarios. Your plan is designed to assist you with preparing to leave, while you are leaving, after you leave or if you are wanting to stay in the relationship safely. Once finished, you will be given a certificate of completion. Call today for help or to schedule a time to make a safety plan

  • Legal Resources

    Faces of Hope’s Attorney, in collaboration with the University of Idaho College of Law Family Justice Clinic, offers legal assistance to survivors of interpersonal violence seeking civil protection orders and navigating various civil court matters such as divorce, custody disputes, evictions, and name changes. Third-year law students, licensed by the Idaho Supreme Court, may represent clients in court for Civil Protection Orders under the supervision of clinical faculty members from the University of Idaho. The availability for representation depends on the availability of our Foundation Attorney, Law Clinic students, and their Supervising Attorney.

    Both a Faces of Hope intake and a legal intake must be completed prior to any meeting with the FOH Attorney or a law school clinician.
