Get involved, News, Events

The Toby Center for Families in Transition is a nonprofit organization whose client parents just haven’t enough money to see their children for appropriate visitation services. Tragically, the State of Florida does not prioritize these children and makes no money available to help these families. Traditionally funders who claim they appreciate our work, but sadly, are not interested in funding these vital services.

Families Helped
I'm writing in reference to my experience with The Toby Center, particularly with Paula. In short, she has made this extremely difficult time in my life much easier with her positive feedback, constructive criticism, and overall support. While I was at first a bit apprehensive of the notion of supervised visitation, Paula has done a great job at making it the best experience possible.

Toby Center Experience
I know that working with children and broken families is something you guys deal with all the time but to see someone show genuine care, not just that professional “empathy” your taught to show but rather a genuine affection, care and love for us and our family and our case.

Gratitude
My daughter began attending supervised visitation in June with the Toby Center. I have been very pleased with the visitation location and our visitation monitor, Paula. I was v, apprehensive about reintroducing , daughter to her father after a lengthy time apart, but Paula has helped ease my anxiety by providing detailed information about visitation before the process began and providing brief feedback...

Thank you!
Paula is definitely a great asset to your company, a great individual to have representing your company, and I am grateful I was assigned to such a kind-hearted and understanding person. She has absolutely made the entire experience much easier for both me and my daughter to deal with.

MEET OUR FOUNDER

Dr. Mark Roseman founded the Toby Center for Family Transition in 2008 to honor his mother, Toby, who had passed in 2007. Originally from New England, Dr. Roseman moved to Florida where family laws are among the most progressive in the nation.  

He initially had thought the Toby Center’s main program would be family court mediation.  Instead, Dr. Roseman found that the need for supervised visitation had escalated in Florida as providers lost their funding.  Today, the Toby Center provides one of the largest supervised visitation programs in Florida and offers multiple child custody and therapeutic services for families in transition.

In Memory

We are honored by the two people who had the greatest inspiration for the creation of the Toby Center.  Dr. Roseman’s mother, Toby gave him life, optimism, and humor. Dr. Roseman’s mentor in joint custody, David was acknowledged by three Presidents and the Federal Department of Child Support Enforcement for advocating a child’s right to two parents and supporting custody policy changes in over thirty states.
