Our Mission and Programs

Safe Harbor Child Access Centers is a 501(c)3, all volunteer, New Jersey based not-for-profit organization, and is a registered New Jersey charity with the New Jersey Department of Consumer Affairs, having met all the mandated registration obligations relevant to maintaining charitable status within this state.  We are also listed in the national Supervised Visitation Directory

Our mission is to provide services to separating, divorcing, and divorced families to assure that children have continuing contact with both parents and other families members.  Our centers cut down on the opportunity for family violence, allow for parenting time/visitation in potentially high-risk situations, and allow for reintroduction of a parent or other family member.  We aim to provide these services in a safe, courteous and child-friendly environment.  We serve as a safe harbor for families in crisis.

We believe that parents should not have to pay to see their children, and that children have a right to have a relationship with their parents.  As a result, all services are provided by Safe Harbor Child Access Centers at no charge.  Our partners provide the physical facilities for services, and your tax-deductible donations help pay for insurance, telephone, photocopying and other program costs.   

In partnership with community-based service organizations, we offer two primary programs:

Supervised Child Access Services: Also known at supervised visitation and also supervised parenting time.  One parent drops off the children, and leaves the premises after the other parent arrives, returning after the other parent has had supervised parenting time with the children.  Trained monitors remain with the parent and the children through out the session.

Monitored Exchange Services: Monitors are present while the parents meet on Friday evenings to exchange the children for their weekend parenting time, and for their return on Sunday evenings.  Monitored exchanges may also be arranged for shorter visits during access center hours. 

These programs are open to separated and divorcing families of all races, religions and origins, but interested parties must make an appointment to use the centers.  Referrals can be made through the courts, attorneys, counselors, mediators, parenting time coordinators, social workers and families themselves. 

Additional Services

All families in our programs have access to parenting time/visitation services.  Where appropriate, we work with families to transition them from Supervised Access to Transfer Services, and from Transfer Services to unsupervised access.

We also provide referrals to attorneys, mediators, custody evaluators, therapists, parenting coordinators and other family law specialists.   If you are a service provider, please contact us to get on our referral lists.

Feedback On Our Programs

 

I wish to thank your volunteers for your prompt and courteous cooperation with my office, and more importantly for the warm and dignified treatment of my client and her boys.  Your calming and hospitable efforts were a real oasis at an extremely difficult time in her life.
