Safe Exchange Center

Connections Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Center is funded by the Office on Violence Against Women, United States Department of Justice under the Safe Havens: Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Grant Program.  Waseca was awarded the grant in October 2012.  The main purpose of the Grant Program is to enhance safety for children and adult victims by increasing opportunities for supervised visitation and safe exchange, by and between custodial and non-custodial parents in cases involving domestic violence, dating violence, child abuse, sexual assault, or stalking.  Our staff will promote a safe and respectful environment so that non-custodial parents, guests, and children can interact with one another.  Connections offers a private and confidential setting while supervising only one family at a time.  The safety of anyone who enters our doors will always be the top priority.  If you feel you are in need of our services, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

The Connections Visitation Center is located in the Waseca Public Safety Building, 303 South State Street.  The Coordinator is Shelly Hovland who can be reached at (507) 835-9759, or e-mail shellyh@ci.Waseca.mn.us
