Avoid this place - do not start supervised exchanges or visits 3/5/2015

They defraud parents and fabricate reports and testimony. They put children in harms way. They have an extremely hateful and judgmental view of parents. They surveil parents and dummy reports. There has been an alleged sexual abuser on their board for years. Do not trust them, they are biased and have ties with mediators to draw out your conflict and suck you dry. They will deceive you with a smile on their faces. They are only in it for the money and it's just a job to them. Their volunteers and employees are not educated and do not pursue careers in the field. They're all placeholders and the staff is complicit and participatory in the directors obsessive destruction of parents and families. There are no policies at this place, only a morbid regurgitated pseudo philosophy. Their "education" is not based on anything scientific or proven or studied or peer reviewed or even published. Instead, their patronizing material is based on a very bitter view of the family, and the directors personal hang ups and issues, her own history and identifications in her own experiences. Do not buy into "having to" use this place, you don't have to. Do not buy into their "rules," as they will not respect your rights or your children's and they will attempt to rewrite your orders or falsely interpret them and place conditions. They don't keep books and purposefully do things in an old fashioned way so that the money cannot be followed, they have no accounting system. You can be assured that your dues on your relationship with your children is going to find the directors vacations. more

Unorganized, arrogant and careless 12/24/2014

As a custodial parent, I was painfully disappointed with the complete disregard for my two year old son's safety and emotional wellbeing. Avoid this place at all cost! The director, Susan, who will not so much as speak to her own clients, and Jose, the only available human who is not a "volunteer," are two of the most ignorant unhelpful people I have ever come across in any type of "child-centered" program. Hannah's House disgusts me; it embodies everything that's wrong with the family court system. Do your research. This place is in it for the money; not our children. more

Great Experience 10/21/2013

Well let me first start off by saying that I am a man and have never dealt with this before, so I can't compare them to any other place. I can say that they were very courteous, responded to my emails very quickly, very respectful, and didn't treat me like I was the bad guy. Yes their fees are high, and yes their rules are lengthy. But I am sure they are that way for a reason. And besides can you really put a price on spending time with your children? All in all I was happy with them. more

Hannah's House San Diego 5/21/2012

My personal experience with them has been awful. They charge $7.00 if your a minute late and bring your kids 5 minutes after the visit was supposed to end. The people monitoring the visits are volunteers. My kids father is very rude and unhealthy mentally but puts on an act in front of these people because there are cameras. They treat me like I'm the problem and uncooperative. I missed one visit due to work and they had said I just didn't want to take my daughter when i had explained the situation. They are very unprofessional and will lie to the other party about what you say. more

Hannah's House - A real lifesaver 3/20/2012

Hannah's House literally saved the life of my son. Before supervised exchanges, he'd come to me bruised, and with only underwear. That was when he'd show. Other parent claimed I didn't show for exchanges at her sister's home, even though I'd be parked on street waiting every Wed. for 3 hours. I left in tears nearly week. There was severe violence every time I went to pick up my son, and video-taping was recommended by the police to show that I was not iniating violence angainst 4 to 5 men with my son watching. I went to police to photograph the head to toe bruises & black eyes of my 3 year old boy, but the other parent claimed I did it. Those were truly the saddest days of his life & mine - full of suffering and no end in sight. We were fortunate enough to get in this excellent program. There was no bias shown to me - a non-custodial father. Instead, the bruising, the no-shows, the slaps, and pinching done by the other parent were documented by 3rd party observers. The other parent was ordered to a month of supervised visits in which the 3 year old child was subjected to insults, slaps, and even biting. Without Hannah's my son was headed towards a dark future, and lots of pain & suffering. Hannah's does the dirty work that no one else in society is willing to step forward and do...they stand up for children, even in the face of countless threats of violence. We all say we will defend society's children - they actually do it. My son is now a well adjusted, loving, & decent human being. He is in the top 1% in his Medical School, and will graduate a year early. NONE of this would have been possible without the heroic work of the staff & director of Hannah's - who simply do the right thing regardless to personal risk. I can assure you I'm only 1 of hundreds of families positively touched by this organization. It may be tough to be a parent during rough times, but it is tougher on the child. That is what Hanna's is all about - helping children. They wouldn't be around 20 years if they were not doing outstanding work! more

Hannah's House 2/13/2012

My experience with Hannah’s House staff and Susan Griffin was in the span of an eighteen month period. The first visit was tough for our children and myself, I have to say it was not positive. I wrote a letter to Susan Griffin and she immediately did everything she could to assure me that she and her staff had our children‘s best interest and well being at heart. Because Ms. Griffin took the time and made the effort to explain the process to me I soon realized my first impression was totally incorrect and the next 17 months far exceeded my expectations. Children are their primary focus and they are extremely neutral and professional. Both our children were treated with respect, concern and kindness. I also had the peace of mind knowing I was leaving our daughter in good hands and she was well protected. She knew this as well. I would highly recommend Hannah’s House and any of the staff. more

Safe and Secure 12/11/2011

The facility is safe and secure and the staff is well-trained. Fees are reasonable and policies are evenly enforced even when I didn't like it! Professional and competent. Would be great if the rooms were bigger but they are clean and child-friendly. more

Please don't use them for any kind of service 9/14/2011

I am currently trying to use this facility to see my kids. It is a TINY environment, place needs to be expanded, each room is literally the size of a guest room in an average CA house, and the only thing that seperates the "sports room" to the "art room" is the label at the door, and a few paintbrushes added to the paint room. Very rude and unprofessional personnel, i went a week without hearing from them, and when i asked why, they said it's because my debit card hadn't gone through and hadn't started any work.. -_-' , yet during the orientation they referred to themselves as a "no profit organization", they also didn't call to reverify CC information. I call almost every day, and each time they come up with a different excuse, sometimes they don't even answer at all (caller ID i'm guessing) I'm glad that in two weeks i never have to use them again, and i haven't even used them once so far from all their procastrination in the last month, what a pathetic excuse of a facility, horrified, terrible, and just plain out sorry doesn't begin to describe this place. I walked in and the first thing they said was how i was going to pay.. so much for non profit. Best of luck and hope this helps. more

Background checks tell you alot 6/28/2010

Susan Griffin background is less than desirable. Has anyone checked the north county times articles of fines and misrepresentations she was charged and plead over including calling herself a Doctor no less. The staff is rude, bias and thank god others can now start looking at several new places that are coming in competetion soon of this house of horrors more

Don't go there! 5/31/2010

Elena is very rude and is not professional. She was biased the moment I talked to her. She acted very immature and is probably still in school. more

Horrible Place to Bring Children 12/14/2009

Good: They answer the phone when you call.. Bad: The service is less than professional. They are rude and abrasive to the parent and child.. Improvements: Do these people even have credentials? i'd like to see some and p the professionalism that comes along with it.. more

Lacking 12/13/2009

My daughter must use this supervision facility simply because there are no others in San Diego County. We have found the employees/volunteers to be extremely rude, biased depending upon who is the paying party, and downright misrepresenting at times. more

Supervised Visitation 11/25/2009

Good: Majority of the staff were pleasant and extremely understanding, could be cleaner-but a cheerful, home-set environment. Bad: the rest were quite the opposite(either very biased or outright verbally abusive to my child)The whole place went through employess/volunteers like cattle.. Improvements: They were NOT clear upon directions-and if you were more than 5 mins.late-the only information they gave your/other CP(custopdial parent)was that you weren't going to make the visit-thereby,if you were a block away,yet late in their protocol-both your child&CP were let down & saw you as unreliable & unavailable.. Other: Some of the employees now freelance as phone monitors-these are the same employees who were verbally abusive to my child in my presence.. more

Fair and Effective Divorce Attorney 2/27/2006

A relative of mine recently went through a divorce and Hannah's House made it as uncomplicated as possible. They were very professional and demanded the same behavior out of their clients. They're fast, yet thorough, and fair in the settlments they make. They do not allow emotions to overpower the law and the tasks at hand. My relative said that this professionalism really kept things in focus and made for a much easier process. Their hourly rates aren't cheap, but are right in line with other divorce attorneys in San Diego. more
