Navigating the child support system while looking for a job and establishing a healthy and strong relationship with their children is difficult for some parents. The Child Support Employment and Parenting Program (CSEPP, Est. 2004) supports non-custodial parents in Knox County who are seriously interested in finding and maintaining employment and developing strong relationships with their children. The Tennessee Child Support Employment and Parenting Program (TCSEPP, Est. 2008) supports non-custodial parents in Sevier, Grainger, Cocke, and Jefferson counties. These programs are funded through a contract administered by the Tennessee Department of Human Services and the University of Tennessee.
