In October 2008, Joyful Connections opened to provide supervised visitations and supervised exchanges. The following is the mission statement:

Joyful Connections provides a healthy, safe, and homelike environment where children can interact with family members in a non-judgmental setting.

VISION STATEMENT

  • Being available to any child in Ottawa and surrounding counties who needs a safe and neutral place to visit with a family member, regardless of where they live, when they need us, or how much money they have.
  • Ensuring that our customers feel respected and safe while at our facility, ensuring that they receive the services they need, and helping to see that children have hope for the future.
  • Being staffed by knowledgeable, fully-trained, and friendly people whose focus is on the children and by being governed by a board of directors whose focus is on the long-term financial sustainability of the organization.
  • Being a regional and statewide leader, working in partnership across the community to ensure the highest quality services.


The philosophy of Joyful Connections is to provide our services in a child-focused environment. Joyful Connections provides a warm, home-like setting. We are currently housed at 8200 W. St. Rt. 163, Oak Harbor, Ohio. At our site we are able to provide services for families in a safe, protected and comfortable environment. As children and families enter Joyful Connections, they are greeted with a pleasant, home-like surrounding designed specifically for their comfort.

The hours at Joyful Connections are flexible and vary according to need. Joyful Connections will complete all scheduling of services that we provide. Referring agencies and clients can recommend and request time slots, frequency, etc, but Joyful Connections will make the final determination about schedules.

Referrals are accepted from individuals who voluntarily need services, court, children services, therapists, attorneys, law enforcement and related agencies. There are no geographical limitations for service. Joyful Connections does reserve the right to accept or deny a case depending upon risk factors and our ability to serve the family safely and effectively. Joyful Connections’ services are available to all persons regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion or disability.
