Sandy Boyd, Family Visitation Program director
What was once the Family Visitation Center is now a program of the Mediation Center: the Family Visitation Program. It currently offers two child-centered services: Supervised Visitation and Monitored Exchanges. These services are offered to parents and families experiencing challenging interpersonal relationships who need a safe, supervised environment for children to visit with a noncustodial parent or move between parents with joint custody.
The program is run by a small staff and dedicated community volunteers. Program Director Sandy Boyd states, “As the sole provider of this type of service in the area, we offer a wonderful opportunity for children to safely develop positive relationships with important adult figures in their lives.”
Volunteers are currently being recruited. Ongoing training is provided. For more information on receiving services or volunteering: 251-6089, ext. 19 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This program is part of The Mediation Center, a United Way-funded agency.
