Description

An Alaska Judicial Council evaluation of two new Alaska Court System programs focused on the domestic violence protective order process shows that the programs have had some modest success, but not all of the hoped-for results. The programs, funded by a U.S. Department of Justice grant, provided for two new types of positions within the court process: an advocate position attached to the women’s shelter operated by Abused Women's Aid in Crisis (AWAIC); and a facilitator position placed within the court system’s Family Law Self-Help Center. The results shown by the evaluation are mixed and can be interpreted in different ways. The main findings of the evaluation are presented here.
