There are thousands of children and families that are in need of supervised visitation services. Parents, guardians or family members may have chemical dependency, mental health or domestic issues which can put strain on a child’s home life. Joyful Connections is a safe place where children can visit their parent or family member who may have a problem with any of these issues, but wants to try and work them out for the sake of their family and the sake of their child.

“No matter what has happened to these kids, they’re excited to see their parents,” said Sheila Powell, Executive Director of Joyful Connections. “Seeing their parents and having that connection gives them a taste of normal.”
