Kids Connecting Supervised Visitation Policy

Oregon Supervised Visitation Policy

One of CAFA’s main purposes is to make the world a safer place for children. Supervised visitation is often a part of this process.

We can offer this service when the following conditions have been met:


1. Client is cooperative with all of CAFA, visitation sites, staff and polices and able to show appropriate self control when disappointed. They must be able to relate in a respectful manner or they cannot use our services.

2. The non custodial parent has attended the 4 parenting classes pertaining to supervised visits. There is no charge for this class.

3. The supervised visitation intake is complete along with additional paperwork that must be obtained prior to visitation to include signed releases and legal documents. (E.g. judges order, decrees, DHS instructions, releases from the mother, child’s therapist, parole officer, no contact orders, supervised visitation orders)

4. The program administrator/director is confident that all documentation is in order.

5. The custodial/legal guardian has contacted CAFA  and child is willing to participate.

6. An initial meeting (orientation) has taken place between the site supervisor, custodial parent and child/children, prior to the first visit.

7. The intake fee ($50) is paid at the time of the intake. The fee is paid by the visiting parent.

8. Supervised visits are done on a sliding scale per visit, and must be paid prior to the visit. Fees are the responsibility of the visiting parent.

9. Visits are scheduled for 1 hour, once each week. Additional hours are looked at as they become available.

10. Parents and staff must have a clear and purposeful child exchange plan.

11. There will be no supervised visits during a custody hearing to insure we are looking out for the child’s best interest. Emotions of all involved are heightened during these proceedings.


Kids Connecting reserves the right to refuse service if it is determined that risk factors are unmanageable, or the safety of children or adults cannot be reasonably assured, or for any other unforeseen reasons.
