Safe Exchange & Supervised Visitation

Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners have completed additional education and training to prepare them to provide health care to survivors of sexual assault.  These Forensic Nurse Examiners not only collect necessary evidence they also connect the survivor with law enforcement and critical community based sexual assault advocacy services, like those provided by House of Hope, Inc.

  • Lafayette Regional Health Center- Lexington MO

  • Ray County Memorial Hospital-  Richmond MO

  • Carroll County Memorial Hospital- Carrollton MO

The purpose of our Safe Exchange and Supervised Visitation Program is to provide a child-friendly environment to help reduce the stress of custodial exchanges or supervised visitation. House of Hope provides a neutral location and trained staff to coordinate arrival and departure times, monitor the exchange or visitation for safety, and much more.  Our visitation area is set up in a comfortable environment with a variety of toys and games that allow for positive parent/child interaction.  The ultimate goal of the supervised visitation program is to empower parents to work through their issues so they are able to safely interact with their child(ren). Our first priority is always the safety of the children.
