Parenting Time Visitation Services offer a step down approach to visitation.
- Facilitated – The most intensive visit. A facilitator works one on one with a family, supervising the visit the entire time, providing redirection, modeling, suggestions and resources.
- Monitored – A supervised visit with a Family Nurturing Center facilitator. There is one facilitator to three families and is less intensive in nature.
- Community – A supervised visit with one facilitator to one family in the community. Community visitation is for families close to reunifying making progress on their case plan.
Visitation provides an opportunity for families to visit in a safe, supervised setting, and build skills needed to enhance healthy family functioning.
Questions about our Visitation programs can be directed to the Director of Visitation Services.
Visitation Facilitators provide directed activities, parent education, coaching and feedback to help make the visit successful and assist families in moving toward permanency. Family Nurturing Center Visitation Facilitators are key members of the decision making team and work side by side with the family and Hamilton County Job and Family Services (JFS) staff to help children achieve stability and permanency.
