A supervised visit allows children to have positive contact with a non-custodial parent in a positive environment. The staff observes the visit between adult and child. Security is provided. Visits are one hour in length. Games, books and toys are available for use during services.
A monitored exchange involves the transfer of children from one parent to another without conflict or violence. It takes place in a neutral and child-friendly atmosphere and focuses on the safety and well-being of the child. Respect and courtesy are given to both parents.
Some families are self-referred and choose to use the CVEC to help them feel safe and comfortable during exchanges and visits. Other families are referred to the CVEC by the court, mediator, attorney, community agency or law enforcement.
As a nonprofit agency, CVEC services are provided at a small fee:
- Intake (if reside within service area): $25
- Intake (if reside outside service area): $30
- Visitation: $10
- Exchange: $5 per client, per exchange
Clients must complete an intake prior to services beginning. The SOS service area consists of Lyon, Coffey, Osage, Greenwood, Morris and Chase counties. Payment may be made in cash only.
