What is the Center
The Child Exchange and Parenting Center was created to provide children and their families with a neutral, safe and secure environment in which to conduct parental exchanges as well as court ordered supervised visitation. The Center serves the 31st Judicial District counties of Allen, Neosho, Woodson and Wilson, along with Anderson County in the 4th Judicial District. Supervised visits and monitored exchanges occur by appointment only. The Center is closed on major holidays, however, services may be conducted on the days immediately before or after the holiday.
The Center is located at 406 North Buckeye in Iola, Kansas. Two separate rooms are available for supervised visitation as well as a large reception area for monitored exchanges. Every effort has been made to ensure a pleasant, calm environment for children and their families. Trained security personnel are on site to ensure the safety of all parties.
Families may be referred to the Center by court order, agency referral or self-referral. Priority is given to those parties residing in the counties served by Hope Unlimited, Inc.
Each parent must attend an initial intake interview before visitation or exchange services can be scheduled. During the interview, Center personnel will review the guidelines of the program with the participants.
The Visitation Center is a member program of the Supervised Visitation Network and the Kansas Network of Visitation Providers.
Who Pays for Services?
