Evaluation of the Tennessee Parent Support Program

This report is a comprehensive evaluation of Tennessee’s Parent Support Program (PSP), which was conducted in collaboration with the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).   PSP enabled child support agencies in three jurisdictions to hire staff to provide case management and job‐focused services in addition to helping with parenting time. In the last year of the Parent Support Project, DHS and AOC developed a pilot project to test the effectiveness of providing short‐term, paid, job training in generating longer‐term employment and regular child support payments for noncustodial parents.
