Q: Have you been ordered by the court to receive supervised visitation with your child/ren or to participate in monitored exchanges?
A: If so:
Due to limited appointment space, we ask that you make every effort to arrive on time for your orientation meeting. If you are more than 15 minutes late, your appointment will be rescheduled.
The amount of time between the receipt of your referral/court-order and the first visit will vary, as the program is limited in the number of families that can be served at one time. Please note that an orientation meeting does not guarantee acceptance as a participant with the YWCA Supervised Visitation & Child Exchange Center.
The YWCA Supervised Visitation & Child Exchange Center is located at 72 Concord St., Manchester, NH 03101.
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
The Center offers an alternative to unsupervised visits and exchanges by providing an emotionally and physically safe environment where children may visit with their non-residential parent. The Center was created to help families that have experienced domestic violence and have difficulty interacting in a non-threatening, appropriate manner. In order to participate in visitation, both participants must agree to abide by the policies of the Center.
In order to provide services as quickly as possible, the Center asks that the referring agency provide information explaining the frequency of visitation, the type of service requested, and who is financially responsible. The Center will make every effort to work with both parties, but the day and time of the visit is subject to the Center’s schedule.
Possible reasons for using the Center:
Visitation Services are not:
