Supporting Families as a part of the solution.


Kids and Families Matter program 

Professional Supervised Shared Parenting Time and Monitored Exchange Services


Offering professional services that provide ongoing relationships in a safe, neutral, supportive, and structured environment.


Our Goal is to protect the best interests of children who are in need of a safe environment to meet with family, or whose parents have a custody or shared parenting time matter within the family courts, while providing a secure and comfortable experience for all parties. 

Our Kids and Families Matter program staff care about you and your family.  We understand that families who are involved in the Family Court system are under a tremendous amount of stress.  We understand that this may be one of the hardest things that your family may ever go through.

Kids and Families Matter program staff would like to be apart of the solution for you.

We will help you move through this journey, meeting your Court order and helping you work toward meeting your family's goal.

We understand if you are feeling like participating in supervised shared parenting time is a punishment and one more thing that you do not have control over.  We realize that this is an uncomfortable position for you and your family.

However, it is through meeting the court order that the Judge will be able to review information that allows them to reassess shared parenting time for your family and consider the appropriateness or inappropriateness of unsupervised shared parenting time in the future.

It is our mission to help you and your family by providing you with supportive services and important information that will allow your family to move through your court services with the strongest opportunity to reach your goal.

With over 30 years of experience, Family Services and Support's Kids and Families Matter program will empower your family with supportive information and direction so that your family can achieve its goal to move forward and through this court order; improving your chances of a positive outcome. 

Although there are many things that a Judge or Magistrate will consider in making a decision for your family, it is imperative that as they review your participation in services.  You will want to make sure that your efforts are clearly documented so that they can be taken into consideration.  Professinal independent documentation is considered very valuable within the court system.  

Kids and Families Matter program staff will provide you with the information you need to know concerning how to be successful in this process, and they will provide you with the documentation to present to the court for consideration as very important decisions that impact your children's entire future are being made.
