Description:

Family and Child Visitation is a service within the Family-to-Family program.
The Family-to-Family program operates in Mt. Pleasant and East Cleveland
Communities. It fosters coordinated planning and services between the County
Department of Children and Family Services and the community to improve outcomes for children and families at risk of involvement or currently involved in the child welfare system and promotes safety, permanency and child well-being.


Family and Child Visitations occur near the end of the family reunification
processes. At the start of the process the County, by court order, removes the
child from the home in order to ensure the child’s safety. After the family has
completed all of the necessary County required actions to ensure the safety of the
child, the family may arrange for visitations with the child at Murtis Taylor Human
Services System. This provides the family with a high level of privacy and
removes the stigma associated with visitations at a County government facility.
Visitation services help nurture and strengthen relationships between parents and
their children.
