Supervised Visitation Programs
Asupervised visit is a visit between children and family members where a third party is present. WCAA offers two programs for families designed to facilitate access in a safe, neutral and child-focused environment. Families are typically allowed one two-hour visit per week.
WCAA provides different levels of supervision. As we do not negotiate access arrangements, it may be helpful to consider what level of supervision your situation might require. If obtaining a court order for visitation, a judge may be able to indicate what type and level of supervision is required. Also if you are having a family assessment conducted, the assessor may be able make recommendations about what type and level of supervision that may be appropriate.
One-to-One — A Visitation Monitor person is assigned to a family and they are required to remain with the family at all times.
Intermittent — Site staff will check in on the family at 15–minute intervals and provide support and assistance as required.
Supportive Supervision — Staff takes a more active role is the visit based on individual family needs as determined during the Parent Orientation.
Telephone Access — Staff monitor telephone conversation between the child and parent/family member.
