Get Permission to Visit

If you don’t have permission before you come, you won’t be allowed to visit.
  • Fill out a “Request to Visit” form. Turn it in to your youth’s case coordinator. We use the information on the form to do a criminal background check.  
    Request to Visit - English
    Solicitud de Visita - español
  • Please turn in the form at least two weeks before you hope to visit. This gives us time to process your request.
  • Your youth’s multidisciplinary team (MDT) will review your request and decide whether to approve it. Parents are invited to be part of the MDT. Sometimes MacLaren administrators also review your request.
  • If you have an arrest or conviction, MacLaren administrators will review your situation to decide whether to allow you to visit. If you have an active warrant, we will not let you inside. If you are on probation or parole, you need approval from your supervising agency.
  • If your application is approved, we will add you to your youth’s Approved Visitors List. If you’re not on this list, you may not visit. Contact your youth’s case coordinator to learn if you are on the list.

Video Visits

You can sign up for a video visit. Youth may only have video visits with people who are on their approved visitors list.

We use Microsoft Teams for video visits. These visits must be scheduled in advance through your youth’s case coordinator.
