VOLUNTEERS NEEDED AT HOUSTON CHILD SUPPORT OFFICES

AUSTIN - Texas Attorney General John Cornyn announced on Tuesday, February 2, 1999 that the Office of the Attorney General is seeking volunteers for the Houston area Child Support Division offices (Houston, Texas City, Sugarland and Conroe).

"With a statewide caseload of nearly 1,100,000 including more than 200,000 in the Houston area, our child support staff depends on the contributions of volunteers to help increase the number of families receiving child support," Cornyn said. "Volunteers help save tax dollars because we get the benefit of their assistance without cost to the state. We were able to save the State over $1.5 million dollars in 1998 because of their help."

Volunteers are needed to provide a variety of administrative and legal duties such as data entry, filing and assisting attorneys and child support officers Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Individuals wanting to learn new job skills, students, retirees or others with extra time are welcome to volunteer. If interested, please contact Vincent Ivery Regional Outreach Coordinator (713) 787-7156 or Carolyn Webb (713) 787-7147.
