Child Support Services Open House in Rocklin August 20th
In observance of Child Support Awareness Month, the Placer County Department of Child Support Services will hold an open house from 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20 at its offices in Rocklin, 1000 Sunset Blvd.
Throughout the month of August, child support professionals will seek to emphasize the benefits of parents working together for the betterment of their children. The open house will focus on the importance of keeping both parents involved in the child support process.
On July 9, the Board of Supervisors approved a proclamation adding Placer County to the list of jurisdictions nationwide that observe August as Child Support Awareness Month
"When children can count on their parents for financial and medical support, their future becomes a lot brighter. Our job is to assist parents in achieving that goal, when needed," said Susan Dunlap, the department's Program Manager. "Supporting children can take on many forms: from providing love and support to making sure they are properly fed and clothed every day. Taking care of children can be as challenging as it is rewarding."
The department currently has more than 9,000 active child support cases. Its services are available to any parent, guardian, or caretaker regardless of income. They include establishing paternity, establishing and enforcing child and medical support orders, accounting, and locating parents.
Last fiscal year, the department collected more than $20 million for families. It expects approximately $21 million in total collections this fiscal year. This jump in collections can be partially attributed to the over 260 legal agreements the department facilitated last year between parents.
"When both parents are involved in the child support process, we tend to see a higher level of satisfaction with the customers we serve," Dunlap said.
The department's core mission is distributing collected funds to assist clients in providing food, clothing, and shelter for their children.
