Joyful Connections is based on the premise that children can develop in a healthier manner when they have the opportunity for a relationship with each of their parents that is free from adult conflict and threats of abuse of any kind.
Mental Health professionals indicate that children in out of home placements need immediate and frequent contact with their parents to minimize the trauma that can impact their physical and emotional health. Children adjust better and have fewer behavior and emotional issues if they visit their parents on a regular basis.
The need for the services offered by Joyful Connections may be due to issues related to divorce or separation, domestic violence, protection orders, child abuse and neglect or other safety concerns. No matter what the situation is, children want and need to see their parents.
Joyful Connections offers a safe haven for children to spend time with their family and stay connected.
We need your help to provide
these valuable services
to the children and families of Ottawa County.
Because these children need our help.
Because these children are the future of our community.
Because if we needed help, others would help us.
Because when we help others, we feel good about ourselves.
