Visitation Facilitation

Posted 5 years ago

Visitation facilitation as identified by DCS/Probation will be provided between parents, children, siblings and/or others who have been separated due to a substantiated allegation of abuse, neglect, or involvement with juvenile probation. Visitation allows the child an opportunity to reconnect and reestablish the parent/child/family relationship in a safe environment. The role of the visitation provider is to protect the integrity of the visit and to provide a positive atmosphere where parents and children may interact in a safe, structured environment.
