Child Support Workshops in August Part of Child Support Awareness Month

Child Support Workshops in August Part of Child Support Awareness Month

“Children are the best part of ourselves – the sum of our past and the promise of our future, the guarantee that our lives and values and dreams will flourish long after we are gone.”  With that statement, then President Bill Clinton made an official proclamation in 1995 that recognized the month of August as Child Support Awareness Month.

Child Support Awareness Month is a time to salute parents who work hard to ensure their children grow up in stable homes and look forward to a bright future.  It is also a time to help remind parents who are not always present that they are an important part of their children’s lives.
