This investigation provides initial information about the effectiveness of a supervised visitation program to maintain the relationship between parent(s) and their adjudicated child(ren) through supervised visits. Through comparative analysis, this study examines families participating at a visitation center with those non-participating families. Participating families are more likely to have visitations occur and have several visits than non-participating families. These results provided evidence for positive impacts of the program on the families it serves (e.g., closing cases more quickly).
