Better relationships.

With our unbiased supervision, parent-child visits become less difficult and more meaningful and memorable.

Healthier kids.

Children who have a relationship with both parents grow up to be happier, healthier adults.

Stronger community.

When children are emotionally strong and healthy, our whole community wins.

Every kid deserves to know both parents.

But when parents split, their children are caught in the middle of a tough situation.

Even with court-ordered visits and exchanges, kids often end up sitting on the sidelines watching conflict instead of spending quality time with each parent.

We believe it doesn't have to be that way. We provide a safe, neutral space for quality 1-on-1 time between parents and their children - free of conflict and drama.

With our facilitated visits and exchanges, both parents feel comfortable, and kids can just be kids.

What We Do

Supervised Visits

During a supervised visit, a trained CRC monitor stays in the room and takes notes on the entire visit. Our notes can be used by any party for court cases.

Supervised visits are a great way to know that your child is safe while still allowing them to spend time with the visiting parent.

Monitored Visits

Monitored visits give the visiting parent more relaxed time with their child(ren). A trained monitor checks in on the visit every 10-15 minutes and takes notes that can be used by either party for court appearances.

With monitored visits, parents and children get the quality time they want and the security they need.

Supervised Exchanges

Supervised exchanges give parents a way to exchange their child(ren) without interacting with each other.

Whether for a few hours or a weekend, a supervised exchange is the best way to kick off a child's quality time with their parent.

We care for all humans:

grown-ups and not-yet-grown-ups.

"Parents like me are already in a hard enough situation, and the last thing we want is to feel judged. But CRC is so sympathetic to everybody's situation, and care for every parent and child with no judgment.

It's such a warm environment, and my kids and I always feel safe and welcome there."


"As soon as we left the courtroom, I called CRC and scheduled our intake appointment.

Their intake process was simple, and they answered all my questions. Thanks to CRC, my child is able to see me and his mom on a regular schedule."


"Your staff was great and helped my kids with the divorce. Thanks for your help."


"I'm all about children's advocacy. It is important that parents who want to improve their lives, to get back in their children's lives, have a place and people who
can help them achieve that.

That is what CRC does. The directors and other monitors are
such amazing people."

Paula, CRC Monitor

Our straightforward process is the same whether parents come to us on their own or through a court order.

We make visitations simple for the whole family.

1. Parent Interviews

We start with individual parent interviews at our office. We'll review court orders and establish our rules to help ensure safe, conflict-free visits.

2. Visits & Exchanges

Depending on the situation, we'll facilitate supervised visits, monitored visits, or supervised exchanges.

3. Healthy Relationships

Children leave their weekly visits with happy memories, stronger feelings of love and commitment, and a healthier relationship with their parent - and themselves.

Did You Know ?

Over 32% of children in Lucas County live in a single parent home.

The disruption of family life can be so devastating to a child: and the effects can be long-lasting and profound. At CRC, we’re on a mission to break the trauma cycle of separation by shifting the focus away from parent conflict and instead caring for children together.

The healthy, fun visitations that happen at CRC pave the way for:

  • Stronger parent/child relationships
  • Less hurt and drama between parents
  • Reduced court time for parents
  • Healing from family trauma
  • Healthier children (and parents)

"It is incredibly rewarding to watch children's eyes light up when they see their visiting parent, and to hear the laughter that most often occurs during a visit.

I love that parents can 'graduate' from the program."
