Supervised Visitation Only Program
Helping to Reunite Families
When children are placed into the legal custody of the Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS), A New Leaf's Supervised Visitation Only (SVO) program provides parents with the opportunity to engage and create new bonds with their children, in a safe and controlled environment. The Supervised Visitation Only program lessens the challenge and burden it takes for both parents and children to see one another.
Families and an DCS Specialist meet to develop an DCS case plan in order to determine services needed for the family. Support services identified in the DCS case plan frequently include Supervised Visitation Only services.
The main objectives of the Supervised Visitation Only program include:
- Providing safe and reliable transportation to and from scheduled visits
- Supervising each visit from beginning to end
- Objectively document interactions during an entire visit
- Communicate challenges or concerns during visits to the DCS Specialist
Eligibility for the program is determined by the Arizona Department of Child Safety.
Supervised Visitation Only provides visits throughout the greater Phoenix area. Visitation locations may include: visitation centers, libraries, clients homes and other various community locations.
