Family visitation center
Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation provides and clean, safe, child-friendly environment for biological parents and their children in foster care to have supervised visits.
ABOUT THE VISITATION CENTER
When children are removed from their birth parents and taken into DCS custody, the parents have the opportunity rectify the situation. This usually means serious life changes and hard work to gain custody of their children back.
When a child is in DCS care and reunification with their family is the end goal, it is important parents visit their children regularly to maintain the parent-child emotional bond. Because visits often must be supervised to ensure the child’s safety, they must take place in an appropriate, safe, and private setting.
Yavapai CASA for Kids offers two family-friendly visiting rooms (free of charge) in Prescott that are comfortably furnished with plush sofas and chairs. The Family Visiting Center includes facilities for parents to prepare snacks for their children, and has a casual living-room type atmosphere with books, games and toys.
YC4KF is currently working on establishing a Family Visitation Center in Prescott Valley also.
