August is Child Support Awareness month, reminding parents that child support is crucial to the financial security and well-being of approximately 8,000 children and families in Yolo County.
“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.
Children grow and thrive with the commitment of family to provide for their emotional and physical needs, as well as opportunities for enriching their minds. This is especially important when a family’s structure changes. For 1.3 million children in California, meeting those needs requires the commitment of child support professionals throughout the state.
