Child Support




SWORPS helps non-custodial parents find ways to meet their financial obligations and reconnect with their children through two programs: the Tennessee Partnership for Ongoing Parental Support (TPOPS) and the Tennessee Child Support Employment and Parenting Program (TCSEPP). Both programs are funded through contracts with the Tennessee Department of Human Services, Family Assistance & Child Support Division.

Other Goals Include:

Our coordinators serve their clients in a myriad of ways, some of which include; helping parents understand basic information about their child support case, reviewing their case with them to see if any changes or updates are required, determining if they are eligible for a modification to their child support order, and offering support upon their release from prison.
