Sheila Morris, director of visitation and exchange with Community Violence Intervention Center (CVIC) has been elected to her first term on the Supervised Visitation Network (SVN) board of directors.
CVIC is a member of the international network of professionals providing supervised visitation and access services to families. The 15-member board is elected by the membership, which includes judges, attorneys, lawmakers, service providers, therapists, and social workers.
Morris manages CVIC’s Kids First program. In 2019, Kids First provided services for 177 families including 1,625 supervised visitations and 398 safe child exchanges.
Prior to her election to the board, Morris completed her administrative certification with SVN and was awarded the Leadership Conference Scholarship. She was also part of a working committee to develop a compliance standards manual to be used by centers throughout the country.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to share our unique experiences with colleagues throughout the world, sharing our best practices as well as learning from others to further enhance Kids First programming,” said Morris.
CVIC’s Kids First program is the only supervised visitation center in the greater Grand Forks region. Its services are provided at no cost to families. For information about receiving services, contact 701-787-5806.
