Child support agencies have a range of resources available to help parents safely and confidentially obtain child support. The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) and the ACF Family Violence Prevention and Services Program are partnering to highlight collaboration opportunities for domestic violence organizations and local and state child support agencies.
This webinar provided an overview of OCSE produced domestic violence resources - including fact sheets, desk cards, and online training materials - promoting safe access to child support. Presenters also described key resources funded by the ACF Family Violence Prevention and Services Program and strategies child support agencies can adopt for connecting victims to those resources. The conversation emphasized lessons learned from successful child support and domestic violence program collaborations and promoted future partnerships to enhance safe access to child support.
