Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County has closed most buildings to the public to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services.
Linn County Family Transformation Services provides high-quality research-based services at no cost to strengthen and empower a family's ability to provide for the safety and well-being of their child. There are three programs available to families in need.
Family Visitation Center
The Family Visitation Center provides supervised visitation and exchanges under the direct observation of trained professionals.
Nurturing Parenting Program
The Nurturing Parenting Program is a family-based parenting program promoting healthy and nurturing family relationships. If involved in this program, Nurturing Parenting Program Staff will come to the family home or a mutually agreed upon safe location at a convenient time.
The Protective Program provides support to families to help protect children and adults from threat of abuse or neglect. These services are provided to families with children upon referral from the Department of Human Services.
