August is Child Support Awareness Month! In celebration, Shasta County Child Support will be holding a drive-thru backpack and school supply giveaway on August 6, 2021. Backpacks filled with school supplies will be provided to children during our drive-thru distribution event, without registration and free of charge.

We are seeking donations of backpacks and all school supplies to equip local children for the new school year. Last year, even during the pandemic, we were able to provide much needed supplies to over 160 children in Shasta County. This year we seek to exceed that number.

Donations can be dropped off at Shasta County Department of Child Support Services; 2600 Park Marina Drive, Redding, CA 96001; Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Pick-ups can be arranged by phone at (530) 229-8845.

For further information or questions, please contact Lana Johnson by phone at (530) 229-8845 or by email at

Director's Corner

Welcome to the Shasta County Department of Child Support Services' website. Our goal is to provide you, the customer, with information and service in a fast, fair, and friendly manner using the resources at our disposal and within the parameters of the California Family Law.

If you are a parent of a child, you know that you have a moral and legal responsibility to provide for your child, not only physically and emotionally, but also financially to the extent of your ability to do so. A major part of the Child Support Services' mission is to ensure that every parent involved in a child support case in Shasta County is participating in the financial support of his or her child(ren). Court orders for child support are calculated pursuant to the California Child Support guideline established by the legislature. It is important to the child(ren), as well as the parents, to establish and enforce a child support order that is fair to the noncustodial parent (payor) as well as the custodial parent (payee).

When you visit our office or are requested to provide information by telephone or mail, we can better serve you if you provide us with complete, accurate information about yourself and the other parent of your child(ren). Working together we can help ensure that today's children are provided with the parental support to grow into tomorrow's citizens and leaders.
