Pennsylvania Non-Custodial Parent Programs Achieve $67 Million in Wage Attachment Collections
The New Employment Opportunities for Non-Custodial Parents (NEON) programs in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Delaware County, Pennsylvania, recently achieved over $67 million in child support wage attachment collections.
The programs are operated in partnership with the Pennsylvania Family Courts, Bureau of Child Support Enforcement, Philadelphia Networking for Jobs Program, and EDSI (Educational Data Systems, Inc.). Since 2004, these programs have placed nearly 8,000 non-custodial parents, many of whom are ex-offenders, into unsubsidized employment. This has resulted in job placements with self-sufficient wages, job retention, and assistance in the reunification of parents with their children.
In 2004, the original NCP program in Philadelphia was designed and implemented in conjunction with the Philadelphia Family Court, Networking for Jobs Program and EDSI. Based on its great success, the program was expanded into Pittsburgh and Delaware County.
Ray Eibel, EDSI’s Director of New Business Development, says, “It has been a pleasure to work in tandem with our community partners on behalf of many in-need populations in the Philly area. We are pleased to announce that EDSI has hit this great milestone, enabling us to more fully support our customers in reaching their goals of self-sustainability. This is a remarkable accomplishment for the families of Philadelphia.”
