The Family Visitation Center

The Family Visitation Center

The Family Visitation Center supports safe, nurturing healthy meetings between children and families either on-site, in the community or in families homes. It is an opportunity for families who are facing challenges to spend time together and, if needed, to learn new skills. Families using the Family Visitation Center may be referred by the Department of Health and Human Services, the court system, mental health providers or may be self-referred. The Center often serves families whose children are in state custody and have court-mandated visits. Families affected by separation and divorce may also safely use the Center for  visits between children and non-custodial parents.

The Center provides secure, supervised observation, assessment, facilitation and documentation. The Center also offers

  • A home-like setting for family meetings and meals
  • Supervised family visits
  • Parenting education
  • Games, toys, crafts and activities for children
  • Resources for families
  • Interactive, directed activities
  • Visitation and parental education for families with special needs, including:
  • High risk families dealing with domestic violence, abuse/neglect and kidnap threats
  • Children dealing with behavior problems, medical issues, mental illness and mental retardation
  • Parents dealing with mental illness, substance abuse, family chaos, mental retardation and/or who are working to build relationship, behavior management or parenting skills
