In an effort to reunite families that have been disrupted, Parents Place provides the Supervised Visitation Program for Wisconsin families. The program allows children who have been separated from their families the opportunity to maintain a relationship with their parent/s while a permanency plan is being formulated.
Children and their non-custodial parent's are able to spend quality time together in a safe and nurturing environment under the guidance of professionally trained staff who provide education, observation, documentation, and intervention, when necessary.
Monday - Thursday, 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Other times may be available, upon request.
There is a one time $50 non-refundable intake fee (to be split evenly by both parties) and a per hour visitation fee of $50.
In order to begin the intake process, please download the documents below and return the SV Policies and Referral form via fax (#262-970-8964) or U.S. Mail. Please provide an e-mail address so that we can communicate updates and acknowledge receipt of paperwork. E-mail any questions to Karen.
Benefits of Visitation...
Maintain and strengthen family relationships.
Increase the likelihood of reunification.
Assist with the transition to reunification.
Enable the parent to stay current with the child's development and activities.
Support the child's developmental progression.
Provide the material needed for accurate, verifiable documentation.
All visitation documentation is based on observations that have been prepared by professionally trained staff. Supervisors are instructed to record what happens during parent-child contacts and are required to not include opinions and judgments.
All documentation and file notes will be maintained in confidentiality and are available to court personnel only upon request of subpoena or valid, signed release of information.
Evaluations are not provided of the families who use the program's services nor are recommendations made about future arrangements for parent-child access.
The observations are of parent-child contacts which have occurred in a structured and protected setting. No prediction is intended about how contacts between the same parent/s and child/ren might occur in a less protected setting and without supervision in order to preserve objectivity. Care should be exercised by the users of these observations making such predictions.
