The Child Support Services (CSS) Division of Denver Human Services is currently seeking highly skilled applicants for the position of Child Support Technician II.

Child Support Services (CSS) partners with federal, state, tribal, and local governments and others to promote parental responsibility so that children receive support from both parents, even when they live in separate households. Nationally, the child support program is one of the largest income-support programs for families, contributing money to family budgets to help pay for the basics: shelter, food, child care, transportation, and school clothes. Child support makes a big difference to children. We strive to provide family centered services and are incorporating innovative strategies that improve the reliability of child support payments.

CSS Vision: The vision of Child Support Services is to help build a world where children can count on their parents for the support and love that they need to be healthy and successful. CSS will put children first by both parents assuming responsibility for the economic and social well-being, health and stability of their children. We recognize that children benefit from positive, ongoing relationships with both parents.
