Community Partnerships & Cooperative Agreements

  • The division of child support enforcement (DCSE) partners with the Virginia Employment Commission and community organizations in Henry County to provide information and assistance to displaced Pillowtex employees. At the informational sessions, DCSE staff provide information about services and are available to answer questions.
  • DCSE continues to partner with the Martinsville/Henry County Economic Relief Center in Ridgeway, Virginia. Staff is available in that locality to help fathers and mothers so that they do have to travel to Danville.
  • DCSE continues its partnership with the Total Action Against Poverty (TAP). TAP encourages self-reliance and self-determination by strengthening and empowering individuals, families and communities. TAP participants are evaluated and referred to educational and job training programs and are liked to jobs in the area; participants are also taught about the job search process. A Support Enforcement Specialist Senior travels once every 16 weeks to provide an overview of the DCSE program and answer participants' questions. DCSE also works with Fathers First, TAP's program that provides Head Start and non-Head Start fathers with the opportunity for classroom and group interaction to address family issues, such as, development of healthy relationships, communication skills and parenting responsibilities. Assistance is available with employment needs in order to address child support payments, as well as, caring for family needs.
