Time Center —
supervised visits & safe

Dear Friends and Guests,
Welcome to Evansville’s Gong Wild. The Board of Parenting Time Center
and the Gong Show Committee have been working hard to make this evening
possible. We know our estimable emcees, proud performers and judicious
judges will keep you entertained and perhaps a bit confused. At any rate, we
are certain you will have a great time.
Show starts at 7:00!
You may are may not be familiar with the work of Parenting Time Center.
Briefly, let me say it is a place of security and peace for families in turmoil. PTC
is committed to strengthening parent-child relationships, and to embracing the
dignity and diversity of every family served.
PTC offers supervised visitation and safe exchanges. The Center is a neutral,
home-like location where parents can be involved in their children’s lives. PTC
is open seven days a week for scheduled supervised visits and exchanges from
8 am until 8 pm. Fees are on a sliding scale. All parties are treated nonjudgmentally and with respect. Safety is of prime importance.
Thank you to the committee and other behind the scenes volunteers!

Jack Schriber, Gina Moore.
