The Family Center is a place where children are given the opportunity to develop the best possible relationships with both of their parents.
Our mission is to facilitate opportunities and provide a place for children to have safe and conflict–free access to both parents.
· Supervised Visitations are a safe way for parents to visit with their children under the supervision
of the Family Center staff.
· We provide two different levels of monitoring. All visits are audio and video recorded.
· Most of our clients are court ordered but this service is open to the public with no referral necessary.
For the safety of those involved in Domestic Violence and also for the mental health of the children, monitored exchanges provide a safe environment and omit the arguments between parents/guardians. Through monitored exchanges there is zero interaction between the visiting and custodial parents/guardians. The focus should always be the children and their well-being.
Becoming a parent isn’t always easy, especially where there has been trauma and unforeseen events. Let the family center help you transition into becoming the parent that your child needs. All parenting classes are available in group or individual settings.
Classes are available weekly.
· Triple P (Positive Parenting Program)
· STEP (Systematic Training For Effective Parenting)
