When your family is in conflict, Rally Family Visitation Services is a safe, positive, neutral environment staffed by highly trained and licensed mental health professionals and volunteers who supervise visits and exchanges between children and parents. These visitation services are designed for children who may be at risk of emotional or physical harm following their parents' separation or divorce.
Launched by the San Francisco Unified Family Court in 1991, Rally was adopted by Saint Francis Memorial Hospital in 1997. Rally is the only program of its kind in the San Francisco Bay Area providing services to families dealing with diverse situations, including allegations and/or history of domestic violence, child abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, etc.), substance abuse, mental health issues, parenting concerns, and cases referred for lack of contact between the non-custodial parents and their child/children in Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo counties. Our multilingual staff is fluent in several languages, including English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Burmese, Hindi, and Arabic. Rally staff members meet the qualifications and training requirements mandated by the State of California, inclusive of those outlined in Standard 5.20 and Family Code section 3200.5.
Rally funding is derived from government, foundation grants, and individuals. In addition, every year volunteers and interns provide thousands of hours providing additional services to the many families in need of visitation services. Learn more about how you can support Rally.
