Emilyn Haugen, Director of Parenting Time Centers, was elected to the Board of Directors of the World-Wide Supervised Visitation Network at its annual conference in New Orleans on May 31, 2019.

"I am honored to be part of an organization whose goal is to help Centers by promoting best practices in an effort to offer safety and hope to all families." Haugen said in a press release. "Serving at the national level will help me help other professionals serving children and families involved in supervised visitation."

The Supervised Visitation Network (SVN) is an international membership organization of professionals who provide supervised visitation and access services to families. SVN was founded in 1991 to provide opportunities for networking, sharing of information, and training for agencies and individuals who are interested in assuring that children can have safe access to parents with whom they don't live with.

Haugen has worked in the supervised visitation field for 15 years, starting out her career as a monitor of supervised parenting time, then as director of the five Parenting Time Centers in West Central Minnesota, a program of Someplace Safe.

These Parenting Time Centers are designed to assure that children can have a safe and conflict-free access to parents through a variety of services given by trained providers. Each PTC location is a safe, neutral location for drop off, pick up and visitation of children.

Someplace Safe Parenting Time Centers has five locations: Fergus Falls, Glenwood, Morris, Ortonville and Perham. For more information, contact Emilyn at emilyn.h@someplacesafe.info or 218-739-3132
