'Milestones' Supervised Visitation Program

Programs/Services

Mission

The 'Milestones' Supervised Visitation Program, (MSVP), is rooted in the belief that the reunification of families is a lengthy, personal and emotional process. Therefore, the 'Milestones' mission is to offer Ward 8 families, the appropriate time, tools, environment, and mental/emotional supports that can empower and realistically prepare them for the homecoming of their children.

Goals

Our goals are to maintain family bonds while encouraging families to prepare for reunification; in doing so we:

  • Utilize family social history to improve family interactions
  • Impart knowledge for informed family and social service decision-making
  • Equip parents and children with safe and nurturing experiences
  • Encourage learning and re-learning through activities and programs that promote bonding, coping skills and behavior modification
  • Simulate and model life-skills needed to encourage and sustain reunification
  • Encourage collaborative efforts amongst families and social agents for consistent, appropriate services
  • Communicate and implement individual, family-based services
