Supervised visitation business plans are used to get funding for a business that either hosts supervised visits in a neutral location, provides mediators or counselors to oversee the visits, or both. While there are many variations of the business model and it is often a state or federal agency performing the task rather than a private company, there are for-profit businesses in this space. A supervised visitation business plan should include a market analysis that shows how many families there are in the region that might need these services, as well as the name and number (quantity) of the agencies that the business might contract with. From there, it should cover:
• The "market need" in general—the "why" behind this model
• The value of an average contract
• The specific service suite
• The marketing or networking you would need to do
• The staff you'll have on site and their credentials
The management team for a supervised visitation business, ideally, should include people whose resumes demonstrate a track record of solid work in this industry. It would be ideal to have a social work background and perhaps even an MSW, along with verifiable experience conducting visits in similar settings. If you will have employees assisting you with the venture, a personnel plan is required. This should show who needs to get hired, the timeline for these people coming on board, and the rates they will be paid. (Remember that 1099 contractors should not appear here, but rather as an expense in your P&L, if you plan to pay that way.) MasterPlans can walk you through the financial pro forma or write the entire plan on your behalf. We have experience dating back to 2002 and can deliver a great draft for you in as little as 10 days.
