BAES provides supervised access services to families where there has been a history of domestic violence and/or where there exists a high level of conflict.
The primary goal of BAES is to ensure the safety and well being of children by providing a secure and comfortable environment in which visits and exchanges can occur. BAES does not provide service to families where children are in the care of Chidl and Family Servies.
BAES does not make assessments or judgements with respect to whether a parent should or should not be supervised. Observation notes completed by facilitators following each visit/exchange provide a factual accounmt of what occurred during contact.
BAES does not negotiate access conditions nor will we advocate on behalf of parental parties.
What is Supervised Visitation?
A supervised visit is contact between a parent and one or more children in the presence of a facilitator. The facilitator observes, listens and intervenes when necessary by limiting or modifying a parent's behavior and protects the child from potential harm during a visit.
$10.00 (maximum 2 hours)
$5.00 (per exchange)
BAES works with families where:
There has been a history of domestic violence and/or continued conflict

How Do I Apply?
Participation in BAES is voluntary.
Both parents must initiate contact with BAES before we will proceed with the application process.

A Supervised exchange is the transfer of children between two parental parties involving a third party who facilitates and supervises the actual exchange. The purpose is to avoid contact and potential conflict between parties throughout the course of the transfer
