Child Support Assistance in Arizona
Thousands of Arizona fathers are hopelessly behind on child support. That hurts kids, it hurts the parents who are left to raise children without support, and keeps fathers locked in the legal system, where they can never help fix the problem. We are here to help.
PROVisions for Dependent Children is a non-profit program that breaks the cycle.
Parental Reform Outreach…Visions for dependent children. A concept born from the knowledge that present methods of collecting child support are ineffective.
PROVisions is an executive committee of Planet Help 2001, an IRS tax-exempt, non-profit 501 © (3) corporation, Arizona, est. 1993.
The Problem of Enforcement and Penalty Laws
Divorce and the Parents
The custodial parent very often falls short with income. The non-custodial parent is ordered to assist financially.
Effect on the Community
Taxpayers’ money is spent when non-custodial parents cannot meet financial obligations. (i.e. health services)
When punitive legal steps are taken, payments are “backed” up and the family continues to suffer.
The Solution: PROVisions’ Role in the Community
Money is donated to clear up arrears, helping the family directly and decreasing the cost to taxpayers.
Effect on the Community
Court-ordered community service is arranged for the non-custodial parent, ensuring payments to the family.
Interest-earning education funds for the children, health insurance, job service and family counseling referrals.

Child Support Arrears in Arizona
Planet Help 2001 helps non-custodial fathers pay off their child support and gets them out of court.
- 135,000 Families Affected
- 156,000 Children Affected
- $1.7 Billion in Back Child Support
Ed Pastor, U.S. Congressman
“This program has many advantages in that it diverts fathers who are in arrears of child support payments into developing a healthy relationship with their children while addressing arrears in a constructive manner. This makes financial sense and certainly is proactive in assisting in keeping families together.”
Ruth Solomon, State Senator
“Personally, I have also felt that this type of non-profit assistance should be applied at the child support level. Your methods of clearing up the ‘arrears’ owed to the custodial parent and children seems to be extremely timely and can be of great benefit to the families involved.”
Moises Gallegos, Deputy Human Services Director, City of Phoenix
“Together, as a community, I believe that we can improve outcomes for the children and families, particularly through the works of Plant Help 2001 and the involvement of fathers in the lives of their children.”
