Protect Children! Keep NH Visitation Centers Open!

The closing of the NH visitation centers put a big monkey wrench in a child's life. We got to the Ark Center in Jaffrey NH it has been a huge relief to bring the child we have to a "safe place" for her to visit her parent. What are families to do now? Us supervising would not be safe or beneficial to the child because if there is a problem with one of the parents and it is addressed by us it could turn into an altercation. Which would ultimately be very emotional and cause stress for the child. The closing of these visitation centers could cause harm to children! A judge may make a decision to allow unsupervised visits and someone could wind up kidnapped, hurt or dead! Or they may say you can find someone to supervise them. Well I know my friends would supervise, but they aren't trained to do so like the Ark Center. The Ark documents and has rules and structure which is both beneficial to the child. Also it creates 1:1 time with the parent for visits without any other distraction (Cell phones, other kids, interacting with other adults) It is special bonding time that the child needs. I really hope that something changes and these centers stay open!!! People who go to these places, go to them for a reason. Safety! Where is the safety for their children now? Supervised visits are in place for a reason, Now families are stressed wondering what is going to happen with the visits, let alone if they become unsupervised. I know I am scared!!! I want these facilities to get a grant to stay open, they deserve it! If Violence against women deserve a grant Shouldn't the Safety of children matter???
