Sunflower Kids supports, empowers, and strengthens adult and child survivors of domestic violence by collaborating with central Kentucky agencies to provide safe, supervised visitation services. The organization works toward a vision of diverse communities free of violence, where all individuals are safe and treated with the respect they deserve. True to this inclusive mission, Sunflower Kids recognizes that the abused partner is not always female and that families experiencing domestic violence are not always heterosexual. For the safety of adults and children, visits take place at Sunflower Kids' secure facility, which has a number of security measures in place, such as staggered arrival and departure times and separate entrances and exits. A visitation monitor stays in the room during each session to observe interactions between the child and the parent who poses the safety concern, making sure the child is both physically and emotionally safe.
