Maximus announced Sept. 3 that the company has formed a partnership with Craven Community College in North Carolina to help parents in the county prepare for employment through education.
“Parents can quickly go into debt when they are unemployed and unable to make their child support payments,” said Laura Rosenak, senior vice president of Maximus. “This partnership helps them escape the cycle of non-payment and penalties that can lead to poverty. With education and guidance from Craven Community College’s Job Readiness Boot Camp, parents can become financially independent, productive members of their communities. MAXIMUS is proud to be a part of such an important solution.”
Maximus operates the Craven County Child Support Enforcement Services office on behalf of the county, working with parents and legal guardians to ensure children receive both the financial and emotional support they need.
Under the partnership, parents will be referred to Craven Community College’s Job Readiness Boot Camp to support employment, promotional capabilities and other skills enhancements. Dedicated staff will work one-on-one and in groups to develop the skills and confidence these parents need to secure employment that can support them and their families.
Since 1975, Maximus has operated under its founding mission of Helping Government Serve the People, enabling citizens around the globe to successfully engage with their governments at all levels and across a variety of health and human services programs.
Maximus delivers innovative business process management and technology solutions that contribute to improved outcomes for citizens and higher levels of productivity, accuracy, accountability and efficiency of government-sponsored programs.
