Abstract/Description: This article describes a federally funded pilot program designed to connect low-income families at supervised visitation (SV) programs to other community resources to improve their economic well-being. The pilot program established additional community connections for families in both urban and rural communities. We describe outcomes that suggest that many SV clients can benefit when SV programs are engaged with multiple community service partnerships. We also recommend that judges refer families primarily to those supervised visitation programs that can connect low-income families to additional resources to help address their problems and improve their economic self-sufficiency. Key Points for the Family Court Community:
    practical advice about connecting low-income clients in the court system to community resources, information for supervised visitation and other social service programs on how to effectively connect families to additional services that can assist with economic well-being, steps for making the natural connection between single parents and the local child support enforcement offices, strategies for connecting families to financial literacy resources, and ideas and strategies for social service providers to begin the shift of services to a holistic partnership approach that can benefit all families who seek support through community programs.
