WOAR - Philadelphia Center Against Sexual Violence
Philadelphia Center Against Sexual Violence - Court Advocates
Court Advocates are trained to be helpful to child and adult sexual abuse and sexual assault survivors at all stages of the court process. The WOAR Court Advocates provide court accompaniment, emotional support, legal information and advocacy.

In some cases, family members of the victim/witness may be sequestered (removed from the courtroom) during the testimony of the victim/witness.

The WOAR Court Advocates and the Assistant District Attorney (ADA) work together to reassure and support the child, teen, or adult survivor. Also, WOAR Court Advocates can assist with counseling referrals.
