Cooperative Restraining Order Clinic
The Cooperative Restraining Order Clinic (CROC) is a collaborative city-wide project which helps domestic violence survivors in San Francisco get restraining orders against their abusers. The services are free and confidential. It is the main way in which women in San Francisco obtain restraining orders.
At CROC, clients meet one-on-one with an interviewer who then prepares the paperwork necessary to file for a restraining order. Interpreters are available at the clinics for clients who do not speak English or Spanish. Child care is also available. Clinic appointments are scheduled on Saturdays or on Thursday evenings.
