Innovative’s Youth & Family Services program area was established in 2001, originally to provide respite care to families with special needs children. Today, the program offers Supervised Visitation, Case Aide, and Parent Plan Mediation Services. Supervised Visitation is a program that provides a safe, neutral environment for visits between a non-custodial parent and his/her child(ren) under the supervision of an objective, trained Community Support Specialist. Case Aide provides monitoring and supervision of adolescents who are in foster care and need the constant physical presence of an adult. Grant-funded parenting plan mediation services are available to income-eligible parents through a partnership with a local nonprofit, Community Mediation Services.
