We commit to support children’s safety, healing, and stability.

The Children’s Safe Exchange and Visitation program honors the importance of the parent-child relationship to the security and healthy development of children. Services strengthen this bond without children worrying about conflict, intimidation, control, and abuse

  • Supervised exchange oversees the transition of children from one parent to the other. Parents do not come into contact with one another during the process. Following the exchange, the visiting parent leaves to spend time with his or her children unsupervised.
  • Monitored visitation is between a non-custodial parent or guardian and one or more children in a safe, secure environment to enhance building positive parent-child relationships. Visits take place at our facility and are observed and documented by a Visitation Monitor.

What is the service orientation?

Each party is required to participate in a separate orientation. To understand the unique needs of individuals and families, we will explore the services offered by our Children’s Safe Exchange and Visitation program. You will need to bring photo identification, any court documents relating to the need for services, and submit payment of the sliding scale service fee, if applicable. Following our discussion and tour of our facility, we will review and sign a service contract to acknowledge acceptance of program rules. When both parties have completed the orientation and signed the service contract, our staff will follow up to schedule your first visitation or exchange.

Should my children participate in the orientation?

If child(ren) are of an appropriate age, the custodial party will be asked to schedule their orientation at a time when the child(ren) can attend. This will provide the child(ren) with a chance to meet our staff and explore the facility before their first visit or exchange.

How will services be provided?

We commit to the following service philosophy:

  • To provide equal regard for the safety of child(ren) and adults.
  • To offer services that celebrate diversity and honor our Statement of Inclusion.
  • To honor the nature, dynamics, and impact of intimate partner abuse.
  • To treat every individual with fairness and respect.
  • To collaborate with community partners to provide additional necessary services.

Will my children and I be safe?

While our facilities offer a warm and friendly environment, we use a variety of safety mechanisms to ensure that children and adults are protected from harm during exchanges and visitations:

  • Staggered arrival and departure times.
  • Separate entrances and exits.
  • Surveillance cameras and buzz/lock entrances.
  • Trained visitation monitors.
  • Off-duty law enforcement officers.
  • Metal detector wand.

What if I have a no-contact order?

Our rules and safety measures allow for court-ordered visitation to occur while no-contact orders remain in place.

How much are service fees?

Service fees are based on your individualized service needs and based on a sliding scale. We will provide additional information about the fee structure during our conversation to schedule the orientation.
