Every year over one hundred Paulding County children enter the juvenile court system as a result of abuse or neglect. Supervised parent-child visitations are crucial to the process of bringing parents and their children back together. These visits not only provide feedback to the court on the progress of a family, but more importantly, they allow participants to maintain their familial bond.
