In 2014, we realized there was not a single supervised parenting time center to serve the residents of Douglas County. Sure, DHS has a facility for its clients to use and there are also some very awesome individuals who work as free-lance supervisors, but there existed no centrally located, professional, clean, safe parenting time/visitation center for non-custodial parents to visit with their children one-on-one, in a nurturing and private location.
We saw the need and we began our research; and with lot of hard work and the help and generosity of the community of Douglas County, Oregon who helped to not only create a beautiful supervised parenting time center right in the heart of downtown Roseburg, but its citizens (and generosity from outside Douglas County as well) donated toys, supplies, money, products, and so much more to create what has now become an important resource for families in conflict.
A Safe Place Oregon exists not because of one person's dream or passion, but it truly does belong to the entire community of Douglas County, for without the support of so many people who believe in our mission: "that no child shall go without seeing their parent simply because the parent cannot afford to pay the fee associated with supervised parenting time facilitators," none of this could be possible.
