Family Services Program
Our goal is to help families stay together. We work with parents and kids - offering mental health services, and assistance and building parenting skills to create a more stable and safe environment for the family. Our family support program works with the parents and caregivers who want to become better – who recognize they need growth and are willing to do the work to improve. Our programs teach parents and caregivers how to build trust, maintain respect and develop a relationship with their kids. Sometimes this involves learning the basics of parenting and sometimes it is helping parents navigate the complex judicial process, but in every interaction, we are there to help
Family Support Program
Family support services are based on the understanding that families want the best for their children. However, families sometimes experience situations where the court becomes involved. Court involvement doesn’t always mean the children are removed but in many cases they are. Families often face additional challenges, including comprising escalated trauma, outstanding stress, social isolation, and financial strain. In these cases, families can become overwhelmed, and find it difficult to navigate the court system and gain social and emotional support for themselves.
Supported Supervised Visitation
Supported supervised visitation is when the parent is only permitted to visit with their child or children in the presence of another individual. The visit may take place at the parents, home, in the community, or in our visitation facility. The purpose of supervised visitation is to provide a structured environment that is safe and comfortable to help maintain contact and relationship.

Many individuals can live on their own with just a little support. Our Opportunities program is the answer in cases like this. Opportunities' staff teach, guide, and counsel individuals in all areas needed to maintain an independent lifestyle. This may sometimes mean teaching how to cook, keeping the living space clean, taking medications regularly and correctly, healthy living skills, help to get to and from work, and other lessons. Individuality is a hallmark of this program. No one is forced to do anything. Our staff works with each individual to determine their goals.
