Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
When children are removed from their parents’ custody due to abuse, neglect or abandonment, they visit with their parents, supervised, up to one hour a week in a restricted setting. Although this meets the requirement of the law for supervised visitation, it is not conducive to strong family relationships. The overwhelming trauma children feel after a separation from their parents requires more quality time with their parents in a more natural setting. In an effort to create more time for parents and children to spend more time together, a new visitation initiative has been established - a faith-based supervised visitation program. This program creates more quality time for the family bond to continue and to promote and strengthen the reunification of families.
Low to medium risk families will be referred, based on a family assessment, to take part in the FBSVP. The scheduling and the location of the visits will occur between the visit supervisor, the caregiver and the parents. The goal is for the family to spend as much time together as possible while the children are out of the home.
