Out Visitation Center was established in 1992 as the first center in New Hampshire. ARK provides a safe, neutral environment for supervised visitation and exchange that promotes healthy interaction between family members. These services may be appropriate for a variety of family situations, including child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, mental illness, substance abuse, or when the safety of the child and/or residential parent is at risk during visitation.
The family room has a comfortable couch, toys and games. A fully equipped kitchen allows parents and children to make and enjoy meals together. ARK has a second visiting room furnished with a cozy reading area, toys, and games. We meet the standards of the New Hampshire Family Visitation and Access Cooperative and the national guidelines for supervised visitation, created by the Supervised Visitation Network.
ARK features include:
- Security check upon arrival
- Trained visitation monitors for all cases
- Neutral, objective documentation of visits and exchanges, with a summary court reports available upon request
- A child-friendly environment but with separate entrances for parents and staggered arrival and departure times
Fully-supervised visits are closely monitored by ARK staff. A visitation monitor facilitates the visit and remains in the visitation room with the family. Semi-supervised visits also may occur; these are monitored only periodically by ARK staff. Visits are generally one hour in length, once or twice per week. A visitation monitor accompanies the child at all times and provides documentation of the visit or exchange. No physical or visual contact between parents and-or guardians is permitted.
