This program is designed to
serve children in out-of-home care, who are the subjects of dependency
and neglect actions, and who have a Court Order which requires
supervision of the "parenting time" between the children and
members of their families of origin, or who the County Department
determines to be in need of supervised visitation. In some cases,
this "parenting time," whether with birth parents or other extended
family members, could be safely provided in the home of the birth
parent/extended family members or in another community location which
would be less formal, and more neutral, than alternatives in the County
Department of Social Services or other agency buildings.
Who Is Eligible?
Any child(ren) who are the
subject of dependency and neglect actions requiring supervised
"parenting time" by the Court or the County Department of
What Are The Types
of Services Available?
A continuum of visitation
services will be offered by the contracting agency, offering supervision
of visitations involving children in out-of-home care at three different
Visitation - in some situations, children in out-of-home care need
only transportation to visitations with birth family members, a
reasonable and save visitation location and a supervisor to assure that
the family members are providing for the safety of the child(ren) during
Visitation - More restrictive than the first level of the continuum,
this visitation would required that the supervisor monitor not only the
physical behavior and activities of the visit, but remain within a
distance reasonable to monitor communication with the children during
Visitation - When the goal of a dependency and neglect action
remains reunification with the birth family, supervision at this level
would focus on more than assessment of the interaction and the safety
and well-being of the children, although those goals would certainly be
included. If possible, and with the approval of the County
Caseworker, this level of visitation should (at least, eventually) occur
within the family home.
Where are these
Currently Presidio is
operating a Visitation Center in a house located in Weld County as our
primary population is from Weld County. However, we have available
facilities in the Denver Metro area to serve the growing needs of that
population as well.
