- Scheduling is by appointment only by contacting 206-477-9897.

- All visitors and youth must wear a mask during visits. If they do not have a mask, a mask will be provided.
- Parents and legal guardians may visit twice a week for up to 45 minutes.

Before being admitted to the no-contact room, visitors must comply with the following requirements:
- Childcare is not available at the Clark Children and Family Justice Center. It is best not to bring other children when visiting. If you do bring children with you for a detention visit, remember only children under 12 years of age are allowed into detention visiting.
- Visitors must wear a cloth or disposable mask. Bandanas, gaiters, buffs, vented masks, and face shields are not permissible substitutes for cloth/disposable masks, since these types of face coverings are ineffective at stopping Coronavirus transmission.
- A disposable mask is available at the lobby window upon request.
Temporary free parking is available on the top levels of the parking garage located off 12th Avenue at the Judge Patricia H. Clark Children and Family Justice Center.
Visiting members of the public can get their parking validated at several locations within the Clark Children and Family Justice Center.
