The P.A.C.T. Place

The P.A.C.T. Place offers supervised visitation and monitored exchanges for families with a history of or potential for domestic violence, dating violence, child abuse, sexual assault, or stalking. "P.A.C.T." stands for "Parents and Children Together," and our mission is to provide a safe, secure, and supportive environment for supervised visitation and monitored exchanges to occur in an effort to prevent further impact of domestic violence on children and their abused parent.  

The P.A.C.T. Place provides a place that is safe and child-friendly.  Trained monitors and a law enforcement officer are on site during all services for added safety measures.  Parents use separate, secured entrances to the center which allow parents to avoid face to face contact and communication during the process. 

What is Supervised Visitation?
Supervised Visitation is a structured time limited visit between a non-custodial parent and his/her children. The visit takes place in a private, fully equipped children’s play room with a trained monitor present at all times.

What are Monitored Exchanges?
Monitored exchanges are the transfer of a child from one parent to the other parent immediately before and/or after unsupervised visitation.  The parents are prevented from having any physical or visual contact with each other.

Hours of Operation:
The P.A.C.T. Place offers several opportunities for visits and exchanges during weekday evenings and weekend days.  All contact at The PACT Place must be done by APPOINTMENT ONLY.  This is a safety precaution to prevent contact between parties and will be strictly adhered to. 

For more information or to schedule an intake appointment, please email us or call (985) 532-4390.
