Referral Anyone who has an interest in referring a family to be considered for services must submit a referral form. This form is available upon request via email from Family Connections email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Referrals can come from family courts, court services, attorneys, Department of Social Services, or anyone with child protection interests.
Appointment Please call the lead monitor at (605)-665-1204 to schedule an intake. Intakes must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. If you cannot attend your intake, please cancel 24 hours in advance and reschedule. Services cannot begin until both parties have completed an intake.
Intake Intakes consist of a tour of the facility, our policies and procedures, client rights and responsibilities, and the S.M.I.L.E. video. The schedule and cost of the Supervised Visitation/Safe Exchange will be determined during the intake. Cost of the intake is $35. Please bring the $35 with you as well as 2 pay stubs or last years tax return as RCFC uses a sliding scale for fees and scholarships. Please bring any court, referral, or protection order paperwork with you to the intake.
Visitation/Exchanges After both parties have completed an intake, services will begin. There is no parent to parent contact in visitations or exchanges. For more information about Visitation and Exchanges, click Learn More.
