Do you offer Supervised Access Program?

 

MFSO does have a Supervised Access Program, supervised by our Social Worker (MSW/RSW) and administered by an experienced and vetted team of staff and volunteers, our affordable supervised access program offers a safe, neutral, and child-focused setting for children to visit with their non-custodial parent. All such visits and exchanges take place under the supervision of trained staff and volunteers. When parents separate or divorce, visits with the children, or exchanges of the children between the parents may become difficult, stressful, or problematic. Parents may prefer, or the Court may order, that a neutral third party overseas visits with children or facilitate exchanges between the parents. Our top priority is to ensure to the best of our abilities that every visit or exchange is safe and fun for the child(ren). Our staff can also provide brief and natural written statements about visits, and can intervene to ensure involved parents do not make comments that contravene our safe space regulations.
