Montgomery County employees and the public are invited to wear green on Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2022, to show support for the families who benefit from Ohio's child support program. 

Driver's License Reinstatement Opportunity: 

The driver's license reinstatement opportunity will run all month and will allow parents who’ve had their licenses suspended due to non-payment of support to have their suspension lifted by paying one month of back support instead of the standard three months. The program is not a debt forgiveness, but a chance for parents to re-engage to help restore driving and earning capabilities for the sake of their children. Parents can call 937-225-4058 for assistance Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Coloring Contest: 

All Montgomery County children are also invited to participate in a special coloring contest during the month of August. Children ages 1-5 can color this flower coloring sheet while children ages 6-10 can color this bird coloring sheet. Prizes will be awarded for each age group. Submissions must be turned in or postmarked by the end of business on Wednesday, Aug. 31, 22. 

Coloring pages can be uploaded via PDF format and emailed to MCSEA@jfs.ohio.gov
