DEARBORN, Mich., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The New Employment Opportunities for Non-Custodial Parents (NEON) programs in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Delaware County, Pennsylvania, recently achieved $40 million in child support wage attachment collections. The programs are operated in partnership with the Pennsylvania Family Courts, Bureau of Child Support Enforcement, Philadelphia Networking for Jobs Program, and EDSI (Educational Data Systems, Inc.). Since 2004, these programs have placed over 5,600 non-custodial parents, many of whom are ex-offenders, into unsubsidized employment. This has resulted in job placements with self-sufficient wages, job retention, and assistance in the reunification of the parents with their children.

In 2004, the original NCP program in Philadelphia was designed and implemented in conjunction with the Philadelphia Family Court, Networking for Jobs Program and EDSI. Based on its success, the program was expanded into Pittsburgh and Delaware County.

Paul Bennett, Coordinator of the Networking for Jobs Program, Philadelphia Family Court, says, "The teamwork between the Networking for Jobs Program, Pennsylvania Bureau of Child Support Enforcement, EDSI and the Philadelphia Family Court, has enabled us to reach the milestone achievement of collecting more than $22 million in child support in Philadelphia alone. This is a tremendous accomplishment for the families of Philadelphia."

EDSI (, a national workforce development and training consulting company founded in 1979 and headquartered in Dearborn, MI, has grown to a network that employs over 400 people in eight states.
