Virginia Fatherhood Resources & Training
- The Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE) provides technical support and materials to fatherhood groups and service providers. DCSE promotes responsible fatherhood and two-parent families through various joint projects that include community campaigns and training (e.g. community groups, local fatherhood programs, visitation and mediation programs, and targeted groups such as incarcerated fathers, nonresidential fathers, young fathers and fragile families). Related activities promote the fatherhood movement through the 21 local child support district offices in Virginia.
Virginia Access & Visitation Program
- The Access and Visitation Program provides services to increase the amount of time noncustodial parents spend with their children. Federally funded, this Virginia program awards sub-grants to non-profit and governmental organizations to provide education, mediation, parenting plans, and supervised parenting time for parents and co-parents.
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.
Engaging Families for Success
- This Virginia Department of Social Services initiative focuses on education and awareness strategies that promote healthy and safe family practices and encourages responsible fatherhood.
