Supervised Parenting Center for Fathers
OUR MISSION is to facilitate positive parental contact with children and to reduce children’s exposure to inter-parental conflict around parenting and visitation issues.
Father Matters Supervised Parenting Center (SPC) is ONLY for Fathers and their children to provide supervised parenting time and monitored exchanges.
OUR VISION is to help every child move toward having a better relationship with their father and reunify.
- Standard Supervised Parenting: The purpose is to provide a protected setting for parent-child contact. A supervisor is with the parent and child at all times and WILL observe and note the details of such interaction.
- Monitored Exchanges: Exchanges occur to reduce conflict between the parents and the child witnessing such conflict when being transferred from one parent to the next parent for unsupervised parenting time. Staggered pick-up and drop-off times are usually arranged so that the parents do not have to have contact with one another. The actual exchange is monitored by the parenting center staff who generally try to ease the process for the child.
Parents STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to bring toys, activities and food that you would like to have available during your parenting time.
