What is an injunction for protection?
An injunction for protection provides you with legal protection against someone who threatens your life and safety. FavorHouse representatives help clients understand the legal process, assist with safety planning, and provide referrals. While the injunction for protection is a legal document enforceable by law, it does not guarantee personal safety, so safety planning should always be done when obtaining an injunction for protection.

The Domestic Violence Intervention Program for Women is a 24-week curriculum that is similar in nature to the men’s program, but addresses topics that are specific to women’s issues.
