The El Paso County Child Support Office was the first Colorado County to reach $50 million in collections in 2015, an accomplishment that no other Colorado counties can claim. For the first four months of calendar year 2016, the El Paso County office has collected nearly $23 million, and is expected to have another record-breaking year.
YoungWilliams has operated this office, located in Colorado Springs, since 2011. After a public procurement process, the County Commissioners signed a subsequent contract in 2016 authorizing YoungWilliams to continue operating the County’s child support program and its Parent Opportunity Program (POP). With collections of over $12 for every $1 spent, the El Paso County child support program is one of the most cost effective programs in the country, twice the national average for cost effectiveness.
YoungWilliams’ Project Manager, Loretta Everett, has been elected to the Eastern Regional Interstate Child Support Association (ERICSA) Board of Directors. Everett has served the child support program for over fourteen years, and has managed the firm's Knoxville, Tennessee office since 2013. She holds a bachelor degree in criminal justice from Tiffin University, Tiffin, Ohio.
