CADA's Keep Me Safe Parenting Time Centers provide a safe and nurturing place for children to visit their non-custodial parent without the fear of witnessing or experiencing violence. We strive to provide a positive, healthy, and nurturing environment where children and their parents can be assured that the parenting time and supervised exchange will be conflict-free.
We provide a safe space that allows individuals to explore family relationships rooted in respect and non-violence. We do this through:
I am a parent of a visiting child, and I would like to set up visits. How do I do that?
Call the location that you would like to have visits at, and set up an orientation. Both parents and the children must complete orientation prior to setting up visits. A Parenting Time Coordinator can assist you with this process.
I am a service provider and I want to refer a family to set up visits. How do I do that?
Please fill out the referral form that can be found here. You may also call the location where you would like to have visits/exchanges occur, and speak with a Parenting Time Coordinator.
What are the benefits of supervised parenting time?
Sometimes, parents may question the benefits of children visiting a non-custodial parent, or question the need for supervised visits or exchanges. These concerns may come from past experiences, a history of lack of contact between the parent and the children, and disagreement over whether or not a visit/exchange should be supervised.
For the child, seeing the visiting parent:
What do I need to bring to orientation?
Please bring a photo ID, a copy of your court order, photos of participating family members, and any corresponding information that you would like staff to have.
How much does it cost to utilize Keep Me Safe services?
Fees are determined on a case-by-case basis and will be discussed at the time of orientation.
When will visits happen?
All visits, orientations, and meetings with staff are by appointment only. Please contact a Parenting Time Coordinator for more details regarding your case.
