are often caught in the middle of their parents’
problems, especially when there has been history of conflict
and abuse. Child custody proceedings may be the most trying,
exasperating and complex of all legal proceedings.
The Mitchell Area Family
Visitation Center presents a safe and supportive
environment for family visitation and exchanges. The Center
is committed to the physical and emotional safety of children
while striving to create positive relationships and positive
memories for children and their absent parents or relatives.
The Center serves as a comfortable, neutral location for the
transfer of children for traditional visitation and as a location
for monitored on-site visitation. Because custody is perhaps
the most critical phase in the growing pains of a child’s
life, the Family Visitation Center is committed to preserving
family relationships within a secure, child-oriented environment.
Services are offered to parents that are working with the court
system, Department of Social Services, a family service agency
or any other family that may need assistance during a difficult
transition time such as a divorce or parental separation.
The Mitchell Area Family Visitation Center offers
services including: supervised visitation, supervised
phone calls, assisted exchanges, Common Sense Parenting Classes
and the S.M.I.L.E. education program for separating or divorced
