What does the Community Services and Volunteer Program do?

Collaboration activities

The CSVP staff works closely with community-based organizations, schools, medical facilities, and other state and local agencies to develop ways to provide better service to customers. For example, it provides child support information and Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) training to Head Start programs and school-based parenting programs, so when young parents need child support services, they will better understand the child support process. It works with the Texas Workforce Commission and the 28 Local Workforce Development Boards around the state, referring parents who need employment assistance to local service providers. The Community Services and Volunteer Program collaborates with a number of fatherhood programs around the state, ensuring that fathers will receive good information about child support legal issues as they learn to be good parents to their children both financially and emotionally. The CSVP staff visits prisons to educate incarcerated parents about child support issues, in order that inmates will know what should be done upon their release.
