BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland is opening a new center to allow victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse to have supervised parent-child visitation.
Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake plan to announce the opening of the Safe Havens center Tuesday afternoon in Baltimore.
State officials say supervised visitation allows child or adult victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, or child abuse to have parent-child contact in the presence of a third-party supervisor.
Brown's office says the center was established with the help of a $400,000 agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women.
