Louisiana program helps fathers in need of child support money

A program that partners a court system in Louisiana and Goodwill Industries could help fathers in the area find work, as the point of this movement is to provide these individuals with a way to pay child support, according to the Shreveport Times.

Charles Ahart, an Arkansas native, was arrested and brought to court in Shreveport, Louisiana, due to the fact that he was unable to provide his child support payments.

The program helped him get his life back on track, and provided a support system so that he could give financial help to his daughter.

“I had no job, no money and no place to go,” he told the Times. “This program has really strengthened me. I went from having nothing to having a job, a house and now a fiancée.”

According to Goodwill Industries, the program is just one of the many job-help initiatives that exist across the country, as a similar effort was created in Macon, Georgia, to help residents get back on their feet.
