The Economic Services & Supports Division consists of two departments: Child Support & Public Assistance.
The Child Support Department's role is to promote parental responsibility so children receive the financial support of both parents. St Louis County Child Support helps families become and remain self-sufficient through the collection of support.
The Public Assistance Department administers many state and federal programs that provide aid for those in need. Different types of assistance include programs that help with medical care, food, child care, and shelter assistance.
