August is National Child Support Awareness Month


In 1995, President William Jefferson Clinton established  National Child Support Awareness Month in Proclamation 6814.  This was to recognize the importance of child support programs and the professionals who operate them to ensure children receive the necessary financial support to lead secure and healthy lives.

President Clinton noted in his proclamation, “Providing for our children is one of humanity’s worthiest and most fundamental endeavors. Children are the best part of ourselves – the sum of our past and the promise of our future.”
