PROGRAMS

Joyful Connections offers both Supervised Visitations and Supervised Exchanges

SUPERVISED VISiTATIONS

Provide an opportunity for the child/parent relationship to continue to develop in a safe, neutral, friendly and home-like setting that promotes positive interaction.

Additional Type of Visitations:

  • Grandparent visitation
  • Step-parent visitation
  • Sibling visitation

Levels of Supervision:

  • Level One – The visitation monitor is just outside the room observing and documenting the interactions between the child(ren) and visiting party.
  • Level Two – The visitation monitor observes the visit every ten minutes and documents the interaction he/she observes.
  • Level Three – The visitation monitor observes the visit every thirty minutes and documents the interaction he/she observes.
  • Level Four – The visit takes place at the center, but without monitoring.

The level of supervision is usually determined by the court or referral source.

SUPERVISED EXCHANGES

Provide parents with the opportunity to exchange children in a safe and neutral setting while preventing children from being caught in the middle of family/parental disputes. Parties do not see each other or have the opportunity for interaction.

FEES

Visits are $16.50 per person and exchanges are $16.50 per exchange. An exchange includes both residential drop-off and residential pick-up. Fees may be reduced based on our sliding fee scale which takes into account the client’s income, child support and the number of people in the household.

HOURS

Visits and exchanges are by appointment only. ¬†However, the center is usually able to accommodate the family’s needs.
