Our Douglas C.A.R.E.S. advocates come alongside families to support them through the entire process, which can take months.
Our focus is primarily directed towards the children but we want to help everyone in the family understand the process, know what the next steps are, and how we can help through these transitions.
This may include preparing a child to attend court, attending court with the child, as well as helping the family and child better understand the legal process.
In fact, Douglas C.A.R.E.S. advocates sometimes remain in contact with the child and family after the court process is over to support the family during the healing process.
