Home of the Innocents has operated the Safe Exchange program since 2006. Safe Exchange provides a much-needed community service for divorced or separated parents with a history of or potential for domestic violence. The Home’s facility serves as a safe, neutral site for regular custody exchanges to spare children from witnessing ongoing strife and further victimization. The program eliminates contact between parents using staggered arrival and departure times and separate entrances. Safety of participants is further ensured through on-site security personnel.
The program, now is in its third year, served 199 children and 283 parents last year. Averaging 279 incident-free custody exchanges monthly, no incidences of violence have occurred.
