Safe and Supervised

The FVC offers a safe, neutral child-friendly site for supervised visits and exchanges for families experiencing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking.

The goal of the center and program is to provide a professionally monitored environment that allows interactions that can strengthen parent and child relationships, including a parent with visitation restrictions. 

The center also allows the caregiver with significant decision-making responsibility, a chance to feel relief while going through their day, without the worry of their child’s location.

Who We Serve

The Family Visitation Center (FVC) provides visitation services for families who have experienced domestic violence, stalking, and high conflict separation who are not involved with the Child Welfare System.

If a family has been court referred to services, the FVC will file a court report on a quarterly basis.

Before a family can utilize FVC services, both parents must schedule and complete a separate orientation with the FVC Supervisor. The FVC will try to accommodate court orders based on scheduling availability.

Orientations can be scheduled by calling:

(309) 834-5206

What We Provide

The FVC’s primary concern is safety.

The FVC enforces various security protocols to enhance the safety of the families using our Center. The FVC’s procedures are designed so neither parent has contact with the other during the course of services.

Other safety features include: 

  • Separate and distinct entrances and parking areas for each parent
  • Staggered arrival and departure times
  • Security camera monitoring
  • Panic buttons
  • 2 way mirror

The FVC is a place where I knew I could drop my children off and they were safe for that time. I could finally breathe for a moment. This meant I could go to the store without looking over my shoulder. It gives families normalcy and safety, and the children know they’re safe too. Amy, Mom of two children
