MAY IS NATIONAL SUPERVISED VISITATION AWARENESS MONTH!
LET’S CELEBRATE SAFETY!
This May, The Child Visitation and Exchange Center (CVEC) wants you to join us in celebrating national supervised visitation awareness month. The Orange Ribbon Campaign celebrates safety and reassures families that the services provided are healthy, safe and effective for all involved…especially the children!
For over 12 years, The Child Visitation and Exchange Center of the 27th Judicial District, a program of the Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Center, Inc., has been providing supervised visits and monitored exchanges to families in our community.
The mission of the project is to be committed to the rights of children to be safe during visitation and exchanges. CVEC staff members strive for the safety of all participants and we really dedicate ourselves by putting the children’s needs and well-being first. CVEC exists to provide a safe haven for children during parental visitation to allow children to build healthy relationships with both parents. Supervised visitation is far more complex than just babysitting parents who are visiting their children. Each family brings unique issues with them. Each family is managed with dignity and compassion during their time of conflict. A CVEC observer is diligently prepared to insure the safety of all participants while providing a healthy and safe environment for non-residential parents to connect with their children.
Over the past few years, CVEC has continued to grow and in 2012 alone, over 1,200 hours of supervised visitations and 330 monitored exchanges were provided.
