A.V.E.C. (Acadiana Visitation & Exchange Center)

Acadiana Visitation and Exchange Center provides a safe and secure place for children to visit with non-custodial parents in a safe manner. A.V.E.C. provides a safe, child friendly environment for visits to occur. Parents use separate entrances to the center and staggered arrival and departure times. All visits are supervised by volunteer monitors that undergo training.

Security is on-site at all times during visitation hours.

The program cannot exist without volunteer monitors. If you would like to help a child visit with a parent, please call (337) 277-0160 or email the application to [email protected].
