Family Visitation Center

The Family Visitation Center provides supervised visitation and monitored exchange services for families with a history of abuse.

Our services are designed to promote the safety and well-being of families and children who have experienced domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault and/or stalking, substance abuse, and mental health issues. We serve families throughout Lake County.

The Family Visitation Center provides essential services to foster safe, nurturing, and lasting relationships between parents and their children in partnership with court orders. Parents are expected to be respectful of the staff, facility, and needs of the court.

Testimonials from parents:

Even our home is more calm just knowing there will be no conflict at the exchange.

The Visitation Center has greatly improved my life and my children’s lives. This Center allows my children to see their parents in the safest and most productive way possible.

The FVC is fantastic. It is safety focused, friendly and puts parents at ease. I never doubted anything while at the FVC, I knew my children were in great hands while I was there.

I questioned the need for supervised visitation… I now believe that the relationship with my daughter would not have progressed this far without you.

The FVC saved my life.
