Children's Safe Harbor


The Mission of the Children’s Safe Harbor Supervised Visitation & Visitation Exchange Program of Winnebago County, Illinois is to lessen the harmful effects of domestic violence for both adult and child victims by creating a supervised visitation and visitation exchange program that is a safe and supportive environment in which abusive behavior is acknowledged while promoting relationships between parents and children without risk of fear, intimidation and post-separation abuse.
