Report Child Abuse
The supervised visitation program at CAPS provides the opportunity for children and parents to maintain or develop their relationship in a safe, neutral location.
Visits are supervised if more information is needed by a judge or a caseworker about the relationship between the parent and child, or if there are safety concerns.
Each family has a private space for visiting. The environment is safe and secure, with a security officer on duty. There are toys, play rooms, a gym and playground equipment available.
In addition, families are encouraged to bring in their favorite games, toys, and meals or snacks to share together during their visit.
Staff will document observations of the family on a form which will be reviewed by the Supervised Visitation Director and then sent to the referring caseworker or judge and attorneys involved. The facilitator may be in the room at all times, or may leave periodically, depending on the level of supervision ordered by the court.
For Department of Child Services clients, there is no fee. For parents referred through the superior courts there is a fee.
