|County agencies garner state awards
The California Department of Child Support Services recognized California’s top performing local child support agencies (LCSAs) for Federal Fiscal Year 2012, at its Statewide Directors Meeting.
Sonoma County received the “Top Overall Performance - Medium Size County,” “Most Improvement in Overall Performance,” and the “Top 10 County” statewide” awards from the California Department of Child Support Services.
“We are proud of the hard work that all our counties perform daily,” said DCSS Interim Director Kathleen Hrepich. “Once each year, we recognize those counties that have exceeded the annual goals set for performance in the child support program.
“These top performers are to be especially commended, given the difficult economic conditions in which all child support professionals operate. Higher performance means more real dollars for California’s families and children.”
Sonoma County Board of Supervisors Chair David Rabbitt commented, “These awards demonstrate our commitment to and delivery on ensuring children are supported. The entire Board is so proud of the hard work by our staff that earned the County this recognition. It is one thing to exceed goals and it is another to know that when you do, families are benefitting by that accomplishment.”
