NEW HORIZONS CRISIS CENTER RECEIVES GRANT FROM UNITED WAY OF SOUTHWEST MINNESOTA

 

Marshall, MN – New Horizons Crisis Center (NHCC) is pleased to announce that we have received an $8,000 Community Impact Grant from United Way of Southwest Minnesota.  These funds will support NHCC’s Parenting Time (PT) Program to provide supervised visits and safe exchanges for self – pay families in turmoil in Lincoln, Lyon, and Murray and portions of Redwood Counties.

 

NHCC’s PT Program serves children and their parents during difficult times of separation.  Our PT Program provides a positive, safe, neutral, and interactive environment for children to spend time with their non-custodial parent(s).  Our focus is the comfort and safety of the child(ren) involved in the program.  PT Program services consist of supervised visits and safe exchanges:

Supervised Visits.  Supervised Visits allow the non-custodial parent(s) to have visits with the child(ren) in a safe, neutral, and supervised setting.   A trained PT monitor oversees each supervised visit and records conversations and activities during the PT visit. Children are never left alone with the non-custodial parent(s). 

Safe Exchanges.   A safe exchange is the supervision of the transfer of child(ren) from one parent to the other parent.   A trained PT monitor oversees and records the transfer, while allowing no contact with the estranged parents.  The remaining contact between the parent and child(ren) is not supervised.    

 

“We are so excited and thankful to have been awarded these funds to ensure continued, vital PT services are available to self-pay families in our communities!”  ~ Carrie Buddy, NHCC Executive Director
