~ Local Safe Haven for Supervised Visits & Safe Exchanges ~
RAFT (Reaching and Assisting Families in Transition) is a program provided by Our Home Family Resource Center. For over 10 years, RAFT’s supervised visits have helped families in transition spend quality time together, remain connected, and rebuild relationships!
Supervised visits offer support and protection for children who have experienced, or stand the risk of experiencing, trauma associated with witnessing inappropriate behaviors of their parents in the form of arguments, threats, abuse, abduction, violence, neglect, or addiction.
Supervised visits offer neutrality, support, and protection for parents who are experiencing stressful relations with a co-parent.
The visits are intended to be an enjoyable, relaxed experience for the children.
We Provide A Home-Like Environment!
RAFT offers a comfortable home-like atmosphere intended to foster healthy child/parent interaction during transitional periods such as:
- Custody/Shared Parenting
- Father’s Rights
- Paternity Cases
- Grandparent Custody or Visits
- Emergency Custody Situations
- Protection Orders/Abuse Investigations
We are Here to Offer Support!
RAFT supervised visitation program is not limited to Mercer County residents.
RAFT provides a safe atmosphere for visiting with children during times of family transition or uncertainty.
RAFT services do not have to be court ordered. You may choose to use our services while you are working out difficult situations such as custody issues, protection orders, or abuse investigations
RAFT is available by appointment only. Court ordered days and times will be followed unless previous bookings or other such conflict in scheduling necessitates a change.
RAFT visits are supervised by professional staff who conduct themselves in the least intrusive manner possible.
By Appointment Only
Empowering People to Grow from Crisis to Hope
Our Home is dedicated to the preservation and strengthening of families in Mercer County. Through our programs, we seek to foster family self-sufficiency and empowerment by focusing on family strengths and emphasizing the importance of nurturing children.
We firmly believe that families across all the communities in Mercer County can benefit from Our Home programs and services.
Our Home’s *RAFT Program is supported largely through generous donations from the community because fees assessed for supervised visitation do not cover the full cost of the service or facility maintenance.
