"The Children’s Waiting Room (CWR) is open and free for all who have court business in a San Francisco courthouse. Their flyer states: 'We provide a safe place for infants, children and teens to have fun while their parents or guardian are doing business in the building. We serve families of parties in divorce or legal actions, witnesses and people called to serve as jurors.'"
