Home Victim Assistance Idaho Hope Card Exit the SiteThe Idaho Hope Card Program allows anyone with a valid, long-term (12 months or more) order of protection to request a card that summarizes the order's most important details. The Idaho Hope Card Program is a statewide program that was made possible by a collaborative effort of the Idaho Sheriff's Association and the Office of the Attorney General. Idaho Hope Card Information The Hope Card is a laminated card, similar in size to a credit card. It contains essential information about a valid civil protection order in a durable, easy-to-read format, such as: identifying characteristics of the person being ordered to “stay away,”; a color photograph when available; issue date of the order; expiration date of the order; and terms of the order. The Hope Card provides law enforcement with critical information regarding an order of protection. In case of a potential violation, a law enforcement officer can refer to the Hope Card for more information. A Hope Card is not a substitute for an order of protection. It is simply a more durable means of providing pertinent information from the existing order. Law Enforcement must verify the order through their local dispatch. How much does a Hope Card Cost? Hope Cards are free for individuals protected by an order. Individuals may request more than one card. For example, you may wish to provide one to your child’s school as well as the child’s after school care program. Who Can Get a Hope Card? Hope Cards are only available for long-term (12 months or more) civil protection order holders. Hope Cards are not issued for temporary protection orders, for 14-day protection orders, or for “no contact” orders in a criminal case. For more information on how to file for a protection order, visit the Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victim Assistance’s website.

Conceived and created from his home in Montana, the Hope Card was piloted with the Crow Tribe of Montana and was immediately accepted by the Montana State Attorney General’s Office.
