Helping Children Successfully Testify in Court

When children must testify in court, LifeHouse advocates are available every step of the way. LifeHouse advocates provide:

  • Education about court, court terminology and the court process for the child and family
  • Support during meetings with prosecution and tours of the courtroom
  • Recommendations on how to manage possible stress and anxiety related to testifying
  • Referrals to other community agencies that provide support for families seen at LifeHouse

LifeHouse Success Story:

“I could not be more grateful for LifeHouse and their advocates. Our advocate helped support my daughter during a very sensitive hearing, when she would not allow anyone else in the courtroom. Our advocate also answered all of my questions, provided support to myself and my daughter throughout the entire process, and prepared us for court.”
