YES for Families
YES for Families mission is to encourage,
strengthen, and empower children and parents while providing a safe, neutral, accessible place for children to meet with their non-custodial parents or family members that is free of conflict or abuse.
Who is YES for Families for?
Families from all walks of life are ordered to have supervised visitation for various reasons. The parties that have been ordered to use our services are referred to us by Family Law Court. At YES for Families, we focus our services on families with alleged domestic violence, criminal abuse, neglect, and safety issues.
What to Expect
Step 1: Obtain court order/referral
Step 2: Call YES after you receive the Request for Visitation Letter and schedule an appointment for an intake assessment
Step 3: Determination of acceptance or denial of supervised visitation
Step 4: If accepted, complete orientation process
Step 5: Begin your supervised visits
Step 6: Supervised reports
The intake process will occur before the first visit. This is an ongoing process that generally takes place separately with both parents before, during, and/or after the supervised visit. The intake process consists of gathering information about you and your case to determine the safety needs involved in the court-ordered supervised visitation.
The purpose of the orientation process is to go over the policies and guidelines of services, provide you with a tour of our facility, and answer any additional questions or concerns you may have before we schedule your first visit with your child(ren).
