PLUS Kids (Parents Love Us Kids)
PLUS Kids is designed to provide a positive, neutral, and safe environment for the exchange or supervised visitation of children by separated parents in cases where visitation would otherwise be difficult due to issues of conflict or abuse.
Services offered help to prevent children from witnessing and/or experiencing unhealthy behaviors between family members.
Supervised Parenting Time: PLUS Kids provides a warm, friendly place for parents who are in need of supervised visits with their child(ren) due to issues of conflict, safety and/or abuse can have parenting time in a safe and neutral setting.
Safe Exchanges: PLUS Kids provides a secure and neutral drop-off site where parents can be assured of a safe exchange of their children for visitation without having contact with one another.
Supervised Telephone Calls are telephone conversations between participants and children that are monitored by PLUS Kids staff.
Skype Visits: Skype’s video makes it simple to share experiences with the people that matter most to you, wherever they are. Custodial and non-custodial individuals may come to PLUS Kids to utilize this service.
Transitional Services: A transitional programming is provided in order for families to move through a series of services that build trust within a parent-child relationship while decreasing the amount of restrictions.
The goal of these services is to move families into a more normalized relationship with their children in an unsupervised setting.
