Legal Advocacy

Our advocates are not legal counselors or attorneys, therefore we are NOT able to give legal advice. However, we can support you emotionally through the process and help explain what is happening and what your options may be.

Restraining Orders are heard by a judge, at the Douglas County Courthouse Monday through Friday (except holidays). People who want to file for a restraining order need to arrive at the courthouse at 7:30 am at the courthouse cafeteria. A Peace at Home advocate will be available there to answer questions, explain the process, and provide forms. If you are interested in a Stalking Order, please contact a Legal Advocate to discuss options and the process. If you would like to speak to a Peace at Home Legal Advocate, please stop by the public office (1202 SE Douglas) or call our crisis line (541-673-7867).

YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE

What is SNAP?

The Food Stamp Program helps low-income households eat well by providing extra dollars to buy food. In Oregon, people get monthly food stamp benefits to buy food on the Oregon Trail card. It works like a bank debit card in the machines at your grocery store checkout. Your Oregon Trail food stamp card will come with instructions for using it.

You may be able to get food stamps even if:
you own your own house; no lien will be placed upon it
you are working full time or part time
you get unemployment insurance
you have a good car and money in the bank
you are going to school
you have a significant other
you live with others
You can pick up and turn in an application at your local food stamp office (see the information phone number below). When you come into the office for your interview, you will need to bring:
Photo identification (such as a driver’s license)
Social Security numbers for everyone whom you are applying
Proof of your rent and utilities costs (such as bills or receipts)
Proof of your income (such as check stubs)
For non-residents, proof of lawful immigrant status for household members seeking benefits

Over 1,200 Douglas County residents receive crisis intervention, peer counseling and safety planning services every year
