Place of Peace
Place of Peace provides a safe environment to conduct supervised visitations and safe exchanges for families impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, child abuse, or conflict during exchanges.
We serve families that are in need of supervised visits or exchanges. Referrals may be made from many places, such as Domestic Relations Court, Juvenile Court, Child Protective Services, or attorneys. Self-referred cases are also considered.
WHO WE SERVE
Before services can begin, both parties must voluntarily contact our center and schedule an orientation by calling 330-296-4522. Once the orientation is completed by both parties separately, the services will be scheduled.
Children are dropped off and picked up at predetermined times to assure that parents will have no contact with one another during the exchange of their children. This entails a 15-minute window between drop-off and pick-up.
This service benefits families who are required to have their visits supervised by an independent party. The visiting parent and child(ren) stay at our safe and secure location while a staff member observes their visitation.
We require the noncustodial parent or the respondent in the civil protection order to pay our nominal fee. The fee is $10 a month for exchanges, $20 an hour for a closely supervised visitation, and $10 for an open visitation.
