The Polaris Program is designed to support safe family visitations for families involved with Children Services who qualify for supervised visits. With programming designed to offer family supports for children, youth, and families, the Polaris program boasts the ability to provide families with an environment closely replicating a normal family environment under the supervision of trained and supportive family support workers. Dependent on circumstances, visits may occur on-site or off-site. On-site visits will occur at the Mountain Plains CSSN location, containing a warm and welcoming entryway, a family friendly kitchen and dining area, a family room replicating a themed living room, and access to our Snoezelen Certified Sensory Room. Off-site visits may occur in various appropriate locations, potentially including places such as the Eastlink Center, the Jumpyard, and indoor playgrounds.
The family support worker will continuously support healthy family interactions, including but not limited parenting skills, appropriate discipline, emotional regulation, attachment, and boundaries.
The Polaris program may be accessed by referral by Children Services.
