KidShare is a program
that helps families in special circumstances nurture and
protect the precious relationship between parents and their
children. When encounters between estranged parents create
an atmosphere of tension, anger and fear, children suffer
emotional and even physical consequences. KidShare creates
a safe environment where children may be transferred from
one parent to another without the parents ever coming in
contact. KidShare is the neutral setting that enables parents
and children to spend quality time together and build strong
relationships while protecting the children from emotional
damage or possible physical harm.

We also offer Group Supervised Visitation, designed for
parents of infants, toddlers and young children who are
required to visit with their children under supervision.
Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment,
a cost effective means for parents to visit with their young
children, and the opportunity for parents to learn positive
child rearing behaviors from each other and allow children
of like ages to interact in a safe and healthy environment.
