The Bexar County Family Justice Center can help you change the pattern of violence that dominates your life! At the Center, two agencies provide protective order assistance: (1) Bexar County Criminal District Attorney’s Office - Protective Order Unit, and (2) Texas RioGrande Legal Aid.  

The DA Protective Order Unit is made up of trained Victim Advocates, Paralegals, Investigators, and Assistant District Attorneys to provide services to victims.  They can help you obtain information about criminal charges, explain the criminal justice process, and see if they can assist you with applying for a protective order in Civil District Court. If there is a legal conflict that prevents the District Attorney’s Office from providing you with protective order assistance, your case may be referred to Texas RioGrande Legal Aid.  

If a protective order is granted by a Civil District Court Judge, it will order the person you filed against:

  • Not to commit any violence against you.
  • Not to come within a certain distance of where you live, work, and attend school.
  • Not to communicate with you in any manner that is threatening or harassing, whether by phone, mail, or any electronic/online communication.
  • Not to engage in any harassing, threatening, annoying, alarming, abusing, tormenting or embarrassing behavior towards you.
  • Not to commit any of the above acts towards you or any other individuals covered by the protective order. 
  • Not allow them to possess any weapons unless they are peace officers.
  • Not to remove or harm pets or companion animals
  • Family Violence: the law requires proof that (1) family violence has occurred and (2) family violence is likely to occur again in the future.
  • Third Party: the law requires evidence that (1) you and the person you want protection from have (or have had) an intimate relationship with the same person, (2) that violence has occurred between you and the person you want protection from and, (3) the violence is likely to occur again in the future.
  • Stalking: the law requires proof that you are the victim of stalking.
  • Sexual Assault or Abuse: the law requires proof that you are the victim of sexual assault or indecency with a child. 
  • Indecent Assault: the law requires proof that you are the victim of indecent assault.
  • Trafficking: the law requires proof that you are the victim of trafficking.

Here’s how Safe Place works:

Step One – A young person enters a Safe Place and asks for help.

Step Two – The site employee finds a comfortable place for the youth to wait while they call the licensed Safe Place agency. For the greater San Antonio area that is Roy Maas Youth Alternatives (RMYA).

Step Three – An RMYA staff member will talk with the youth to get more information and explain that an SAPD officer can escort them to the RMYA Bridge Emergency shelter.  If the child is agreeable, the RMYA staff will contact SAPD to transport the youth to the shelter. 

Step Four – Once at the Bridge, direct-care staff and counselors meet with the youth and provide support. Agency staff ensures the youth and their families receive the help and professional services they need.

This program is for youth under the age of 18 in need of immediate help and safety.

Advocacy:

We advocate for the systemic changes needed within the institutions of the community to effectively respond to these needs.

We challenge law enforcement when they deviate from departmental policy in response to family violence calls. Advocate on how city dollars are spent in terms of effective response from community agencies.

The judicial system as a vital link in dealing effectively with domestic violence, the P.E.A.C.E. Initiative has worked to improve the criminal and civil response to domestic violence. During October, National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the P.E.A.C.E. Initiative plans, designs and implements events and activities in a citywide effort to create awareness, get community involved, in eradicating the violence in families. 

Coalition Building:

We work to engage community members in discussions about the effects of family violence on family members and the community as a whole.

We are training them to know what to expect from law enforcement in terms of laws, safety, protections, resources and their rights which they in turn will teach other community residents.

We have learned that most survivors of family violence seek help with those people closest to them, therefore it is imperative we build a community consciousness of awareness, accountability and response.

This way that community member, will know what to say, how to respond, and where to send survivors of family violence for the appropriate help and support.

Hello, precious woman. Your story matters. No one can take that from you. We believe you are here to help navigate the rest of your story.

We understand the reality of working in the industry. We offer counseling and mentorship. We want you to know we are here for you no matter where you are on your journey in life. We would love to have coffee and hear your story and see how we can be of support for you.

You will find community and support with the NSAGirls.

We offer a bi-weekly support group for your mind, body and soul. We have trauma therapies available along with resources in our community to help you live a whole, healed and productive life after your abuse.

Our therapeutic environment ensures children aren’t exposed to negative or violent interactions and can express genuine responses to both parents without “guilt.” Often, when there is a history of conflict, children don’t want to show happiness at seeing one parent for fear they will “hurt” the other parent.

It is during this temporary, transitional, and traumatic time that families are most in need of the services provided by Guardian House.

Please email your court order to [email protected] and include your name, phone number and the name of oldest child.  A staff member from our Intake Department will contact you to send intake paperwork within 2 business days.

A supervisor will be present at all times during the interaction between the parent and child(ren). The supervisor documents observed interactions and conversations during the visit; however, they do not record opinions or make recommendations. The supervisor is responsible to intervene and re-direct the non-custodial parent if policies are not being followed.

The role of the supervisor is also to help facilitate, as needed, interaction and connections between the parent and child. Additionally, the supervisor can assist with parenting questions, like how to discipline with time-outs and how to change a diaper. Parents are encouraged to take our free Parenting Education class and can put to practice what they are learning during visitation.

We understand that being supervised during visitation may feel uncomfortable at first, but parents and children typically adjust quickly to the situation.

We will need to review your court order to start the process for monitored exchanges or supervised visits.

Please email your court order to [email protected] and include your name and phone number.

A staff member from the Intake Department will contact you to schedule an intake appointment within 48 hours.

The Esperanza Court provides transitional residential support to individuals enrolled in the Bexar County Human Trafficking Court. This Bexar County Specialty Court began operating in May 2014 with the aim of interrupting the cycle of prostitution, arrests and addiction that devastates the lives of women and men. Shortly after the court’s inception, Crosspoint agreed to add its proven model of transitional residential services to the court’s resources.

Crosspoint’s Esperanza program provides a safe and secure residential experience for clients. The program is co-located in our Residential Reentry Center where that program’s structure and accountability rules provide clients positive support in their challenging transition. Esperanza clients who lack positive supports in the community need time to establish a stable foundation for independent growth and success. The Crosspoint program provides a safe haven from which Esperanza clients can take time to build their skills and resources as they prepare for a new life.

Here’s how Safe Place works:

Step One – A young person enters a Safe Place and asks for help.

Step Two – The site employee finds a comfortable place for the youth to wait while they call the licensed Safe Place agency. For the greater San Antonio area that is Roy Maas Youth Alternatives (RMYA).

Step Three – An RMYA staff member will talk with the youth to get more information and explain that an SAPD officer can escort them to the RMYA Bridge Emergency shelter.  If the child is agreeable, the RMYA staff will contact SAPD to transport the youth to the shelter. 

Step Four – Once at the Bridge, direct-care staff and counselors meet with the youth and provide support. Agency staff ensures the youth and their families receive the help and professional services they need.

This program is for youth under the age of 18 in need of immediate help and safety.

Safe Place® is a program of National Safe Place Network (NSPN).

Free.
