Wellstone Family Safety Program

Wellstone Family Safety Program (WFSP)

What is the Wellstone Family Safety Program?

When parents are divorced or separated and there has been a history of domestic violence, child abuse, stalking, and/or sexual abuse, the Wellstone Family Safety Program provides a safe option for supervised visitation between the non-custodial parent and their children and supervised exchanges provide for the transfer of children from one parent to the other without the parents having contact with each other.

What Services are Offered by the Wellstone Family Safety Program?  

The Wellstone Family Safety Program provides three types of services:

Supervised exchanges provide for the transfer of children from one parent to the other without the parents having contact with each other.

Supervised visits provide a safe option for non-custodial parents to visit with their children.

Correspondence services are provided to families who have unsupervised visitation within their homes, but need to make changes in the visitation schedule without having direct contact with each other.

How do I Receive Services?

The WFSP requires both parents complete an orientation to familiarize themselves with the staff, visitation space, to ask questions, and to review policies before services begin. To set up an orientation, please contact the WFSP at 1-800-909-8336 or (218)-326-0388.

It is important that all visits and exchanges are scheduled through the Wellstone Family Safety Program. Dates and times set up by referral agencies might not fit into the programs existing schedule.

Is there a Fee for Services?

The WFSP services are free to both the visiting and non-visiting parties.
