River City Family Connections (RCFC) is designed for children and their separated or divorced parents where there has been domestic abuse, child abuse, or conflict involved with visitation. RCFC is available to parents and their children as a resource for families seeking a wide range of services in the process of custody and litigation. RCFC can also be used to establish or re-establish relationships with family members. Our location serves as a comfortable, neutral location for the transfer of children and for on-site supervised visitation. We are committed to preserving family relationships with a secure, child-oriented setting.The safety and comfort of the children is the goal of our services. We work continuously to promote the growth of happy healthy relationships between family members.

"I have used RCFC for several years. Exchanges between his father and I used to be something that was very stressful and upsetting for my son. Having the court order us to use RCFC has been the biggest blessing. RCFC has created a safe environment that our family has grown to rely upon for our exchanges. They have taken what was a very stressful situation and have put us at ease. The staff is wonderful, compassionate, and have always made exchanges enjoyable." -Family using RCFC services
