About

Currently Seeking Volunteer Visitation Supervisors. Currently we have almost 20 families waiting for a volunteeer so they can start visiting here at our center.

Children's Rights Collaborative provides supervised visitations for parents and children who, without our center AND our volunteers, would not see each other at all. We provide a safe, secure, child friendly site for visits to happen.

Our Volunteers, sit with the families and take notes, not interacting with the family. The notes are then typed by our staff and can be requested by attorneys, guardians, magistrates and judges. This is a safe volunteer opportunity and you get to play with kids before and after visits if you like.

Volunteers need to have a background check done. Lucas County Sheriff’s office does these for us at no cost to the volunteer. You must be 18 or older. Neat handwriting comes in handy, must have good hearing, patience to sit for 1-3 hours, be able to climb stairs and possibly do some walking, we have a gym and a playground. You must be able to be impartial and non-judgmental. This is a great place for seniors, retirees, civic groups, college students, franternities, sororities etc. The times of the visits and days are 5 to 8 pm Wed. Fri and Sunday(with visits within that time frame, 5-7, 6-8), we also have an afternoon time on Sunday from 2:30-4:30. You sign up for your own hours.

We train you. First we would have you come in and just observe with another volunteer. If you want to get started quick we can accelerate your training and have you ready to do this within a week if you can commit to the times we need you to train. Please contact us for more information or to set up a visitation to shadow.
