PACT – Foster Care Supportive Visitation
The Support Visitation-Parenting Time Services program (PACT) allows families to take the lead and make choices as well as create routines and structures that promote healthy relationships among the family. This program provides supervised visitation between birth parents and their children who are placed out of the home. The supervised visitation worker coordinates visitations and provides transportation for the parents and children to guarantee the visit times are convenient for all parties involved. During supervised visitations the PACT worker ensures the safety of the children while documenting the parent-child interactions. The visitation worker provides written documentation from each visit to the assigned Foster Care Worker.
