Children’s Right Council Center is a place that parents are sent by courts supervised visitation with their children. They provide the place, the supervision, the safety to facilitate a meaningful, happy visit with parent and child, the child the opportunity to maintain a relationship with both parents.

They are the only nonprofit, nongovernmental agency in Toledo whose mission is focused on this work. They take the families that Lucas County Children’s Services cannot take and for these children, they are their last resort to spend time with a parent.

To meet the growing demand for supervised visitation in the community, they are asking for your help. The help needed is two-fold: talent and treasure. Consider becoming a supervised visitation specialist or making a donation to the visitation specialist training program. CRC must have a solid backbone of trained, volunteers to ensure the children served are receiving the best visitation.
