In conjunction with Governor John Kasich's statewide declaration, the Jackson County Board of Commissioners have proclaimed August as Child Support Awareness Month on the local front.

During the Tuesday, July 25 commissioners meeting, Jackson County Job and Family Services (JFS) Director Tammy Osborne-Smith and staff members of the local Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) were present to discuss what child support is all about.

In reading the official proclamation for the month-long recognition, Osborne-Smith stated, "Jackson County holds the health and well-being of our children in the highest regard and we're devoted to supporting them mentally, educationally, emotionally and financially for their own benefit and the benefit of the entire community."

Further, she encourages all citizens to help provide a better future for the county's children, as they are "our greatest asset."

The new CSEA Supervisor Kim Seitz explained that the agency is currently handling approximately 2,193 child support cases. Overall, she said a majority of these cases are paying cases.

"We do have a lot of families who have stepped up," Seitz said.

Last year, Seitz stated the local agency collected over $3.5 million. The state as a whole has the third largest child support caseload in the nation, with nearly one million, collecting nearly $2 billion per year on average. In Ohio, the child support system serves one in every three children.
