Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
San Antonio Kids Exchange works to help parents put children first. Through providing supervised visitation and neutral exchange services, we help take children out of the middle of difficult divorce and parental separations as well as help children to be able to love and visit with each of their parents.
The Center for Family Relations works with divorcing families and families in transition to help parents and children develop healthy relationships and to keep children safe. Through our programs, we work with parents to help them (1) understand the changing needs of their children, (2) understand how their actions affect their children, and (3) develop tools and strategies to build healthier parent/child relationships, thereby preventing children from undue psychological, emotional and physical harm during these stressful and transitional times.
San Antonio Kids Exchange offers the following programs and services:
*Kids In Divorce Situations (KIDS): a four-hour seminar helps parents develop strategies to effectively manage the changing parent-child relationship. This class serves 65 parents per month (770 per year);
*Supervised Visitation and Monitored Exchanges: services aimed at ensuring that a child can have safe contact with an absent parent without being placed in the middle of that parent's conflicts or other problems; provides a safe place for parents to practice new behaviors such as parenting skills, nurturing skills, and communication skills. In 2003, we conducted 4,127 hours of supervision and 2,650 exchanges;
*Support groups: for children from divorcing families, for children 5 -13 years of age;
*Cooperative Parenting: an eight-week group, teaching parents enmeshed in moderate to high conflict the harmful impacts of their behaviors on their children and helping them learn child-focused negotiation skills;
*Counseling and Therapy: for individuals, couples, and families;
*Parent Education: eight-week group courses offered at the Center and in workplaces, aimed at reducing stress in the family and providing essential information regarding child development, nutrition, and discipline. This class serves 295 parents and primary care givers annually; and
*Individual Parent Education: observe parents and children in their interactions, offer education and feedback on problem areas as targeted by the parent.
