Always inform the monitor(s) if your child has a special emotional or physical need. The continued safety, health and wellbeing of all children are the first priorities. 

If there is a protective order in place against another person, be sure to inform the Center Director or Supervisor, and bring a copy of the order for your record.

Safe Haven Program personnel are not counselors or attorneys. Monitors may not discuss the merits of your particular case or give professional advice.

With the exception of legal documents, parents may pass messages and letters at the Access Center and/or exchange items necessary to make the child’s stay more pleasant and safe with the other parent by providing such items as medicines, special diet foods, clothes and/or favorite toys. However, monitors have no authority to force another parent to accept them.

  • Clean up after use of your area. Remove all trash and personal belongings. CRC does not provide storage areas to keep clothing, toys or other items between visits.
  • It is a requirement of all parents to state in writing their agreement to observance all rules and guidelines before being allowed to participate in the Safe Haven Program.

If you have questions or concerns about the Safe Haven Program, please discuss them privately with a monitor or the Center Director at your earliest convenience.
