Our Family programs are all court ordered and are designed with three goals in mind:
- Increase skills to be more efficient co-parents.
- Reduce time needed by lawyers and judges.
- Increase client’s access to neighborhood resources.
Families in Transition:
The Families in Transition program is designed to provide parents and children (between the ages of 8-16) with practical information to cope effectively with circumstances that result from divorce. The Families In Transition program provides practical information on dealing with the effects of divorce on children and how to work cooperatively to meet the needs of children.
Children’s Visitation Center:
The Children’s Visitation Center is designed to help alleviate the tension between children and parents during parenting time with the non-custodial parent(s). By providing a comfortable, neutral location for supervised visits, we are able to help create a better atmosphere for child-parent interactions.
A custody evaluation is a court mandated assessment of a child(ren)’s needs and each parent’s abilities to meet those needs. Youth Connections has been conducting custody/parenting time evaluations since 1997.
