Child Support Awareness Month 2022
August is a time for recognition, a time for reflection, a time for benevolence.
For 28 years, the national child support community has observed August as Child Support Awareness Month. In 1995, former president Bill Clinton established Child Support Awareness Month to recognize the accomplishments of the program and its employees. For Missouri, each August marks the time in which we recognize the critical role child support plays in the lives of children and the value of both parents contributing to their child's future.
The Child Support program provides the resources necessary for children to thrive and August is the time to celebrate that.
Child Support Awareness Month is also a time to reflect on the progress that has been made with efforts to establish paternity and increase amounts given to children. These efforts allow children to receive both the emotional and the financial support they need from each of their parents to reach their fullest potential.
Missouri's Child Support Awareness Month 2022 committee has great things brewing to celebrate this August, and we can't wait for you to participate!
