Non Custodial Parent Program (NCPP) When parents who pay child support are not working they are entered into the Non Custodial Parent Program (NCPP) by the Friend of the Court (FOC) for non payment of child support. If the parent does not attend the program and are not paying their child support they can be put in jail. The NCPP is a $400,000 a year program. In 2008, Deanna was personally in this program and did some asking around. The group (mostly of men) was told to start their own business so they could pay themselves minimum wage and have child support based off that income. I had just graduated with a Bachelors degree in Human Services. (A type of Social Work degree.) In May I applied to Kent County for the Case Worker I position for the NCPP, it pays $19.95 an hour. On May 29, 2007 I started the NCPP program. On Friday June 27th I applied and took the testing for the Case Worker Assistant position with the Prosecuting Office of Kent County and was told I passed all their testing. I have also applied for another position with Kent County since. The NCPP is run through Hope Network. I have applied to six positions with Hope and no luck, not even an interview. I have now been in the program for six weeks and have not had one interview. This is six weeks of child support I could have paid if hired by Kent County or Hope Network. If the FOC has a program to help parents get a job so they can pay their child support, how come they do not hire participants of the program who qualify for position and are in the NCPP? If the program is run through Hope Network then how come Hope does not take participants in the NCPP who qualify to fill their positions first? Today I spoke with a case manager at Hope Network who stated he was mad that the program does not hire more of the participants to fill open positions within the organization. The case worker is hoping to one day talk with a CEO and discuss his frustrations. A year later I was back in the NCPP. I applied with Hope network and never received an interview. I once again applied for the Friend of The Court Position because the year before the position was not filled. A case worker with the Friend of The Court was retiring and a person needed to be hired. I did not even receive an interview. I got a full time job and a part time job. The day the program was finished, I was laid off from my full time job. Once more I went into the NCPP. My part time job gave me more hours so I did not need to continue with the program. I currently live on $500 per month after paying $500 a month for child support and day care expenses. My former spouse lives on $5000 per month after receiving my child support.
