The Parenting Time Center (PTC) is a program of Someplace Safe. The PTCs operate separately from Someplace Safe’s Advocacy programs, with separate staff to alleviate conflicts of interest and maintain confidentiality. However, in many communities, the PTC may be co-located with, or near, Someplace Safe’s local Advocacy offices.
The constancy of the parent-child relationship is key to a child’s sense of security, feelings of self-worth, and development. Yet, many children today are deeply and adversely affected by lack of quality contact with a parent due to situations out of their control, including divorce, separation or family violence and abuse.
Our Parenting Time Centers are designed to assure that children can have safe and conflict-free access to parents through a variety of services delivered by trained providers. The PTC and its staff encourage respectful communication within families, help to establish a parenting time routine, provide parenting tips, and offer parents referrals to other community resources. Each center provides a safe, neutral location for drop off, pick up and visitation of children.
Someplace Safe’s Parenting Time Center is a member of the Minnesota Chapter of the Supervised Visitation Network.
