DAIP’s Duluth Family Visitation Center (DFVC) works to restore safety and repair harm in the lives of women and children after abuse. The DFVC supervises visits and exchanges with the child and the parent responsible for the abuse. Our focus is building safe and positive relationships.

“My child witnessed fighting and abuse for three years before we started coming here. Using the center has made a huge impact on my child in that way. If we didn’t use these services he would have continued to abuse me, mess with me, etc. If exchanges were elsewhere I know he would still pressure and manipulate me. I’d be vulnerable and he would use that to his benefit. Now he has to re-learn how to deal with our relationship appropriately. Since he can’t see me or talk to me he has no choice but to focus his energy on our child.” –Parent using the Center for monitored visits and exchanges over the last six months

Duluth Family Visitation Center Hours

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the dangerous rise in cases in Northeast, MN, the Domestic Abuse Intervention Programs has temporarily closed the Duluth Family Visitation Center. We fully appreciate the difficulty this causes for those who utilize our services but we cannot assure the safety of the children or parents who come through our building each week.  We will monitor the number of cases of COVID-19 and reopen when we feel it is safe enough to do so.  If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call us at 218-722-2781 or visit us on our website.  Thank you and stay safe.
