SUPERVISED VISITATION -
At SafeHaven of the Ozarks, you'll find a safe, inviting setting where families in crisis are encouraged to heal. Our comfortable, home-like setting encourages positive family relationships and is designed to enhance the process of healthy reunification when a child is in foster care, alienated from his/her family, or otherwise in crisis.
SafeHaven also helps divorcing couples who have custody disputes or concerns about the non-custodial parent using visitation time to talk negatively about the other parent or make false promises that would endanger the child's emotional health. It's also a safe place for visits when there is concern that the non-custodial parent is considered a risk for parental abduction or kidnaping.
Families who come to SafeHaven will find a house with toys and games, comfortable furnishings, and a yard with outdoor activities. Parents will be encouraged to bond with their child through such activities as reading a book in front of the fireplace, baking cookies together in SafeHaven's fully operational kitchen, playing catch in the backyard, playing air hockey and board games, or watching a movie together as they munch on popcorn.
Parents may fulfill court-ordered Parenting Education requirements through individual and group parenting classes. A special curriculum is offered for grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. Additional parenting classes are provided to parents who themselves were victims of physical or sexual abuse.
