WOODLAND, CA (MPG) - The Yolo County Department of Child Support Services received the state’s Director’s Excellence Gold Award for their service over the last fiscal year.  The award, presented by California Department of Child Support Services Director Michael Wilkening, recognizes Yolo County’s work in collecting and distributing child support for county families.  Yolo County is one of only two agencies statewide to receive the Gold Award.

Yolo County Child Support Services distributed over $14,337,000 in child support in 2017, their most successful year to date.  Collections of current support continues to rise and is now 71.8 percent.  Despite an 18-year flat allocation from the state, the department increased its performance each year over the last five years.

Wilkening has also recognized Yolo County Child Support Services’ improved service efficiencies for their community.  During the 2017 fiscal year, county families opened cases, received orders for child support and their first payments more quickly and efficiently.

“Yolo County Child Support Services staff are partnering with parents to help them fulfill their support obligations,” said Yolo County Department of Child Support Services Director Natalie Dillon.  “It’s really rewarding to see parents’ commitment to their children.  Every child deserves the support of both parents.  This is an outstanding achievement and could not have been accomplished without the dedicated staff in this office.”
