Pitt County DSS Hosts STEPP Job Fair for Parents August 30

Recruiting custodial and noncustodial parents for employment positions


PITT COUNTY, N.C. – Pitt County Department of Social Services (DSS) is hosting the Supporting 

Training and Employing Parents Program (STEPP) Job Fair on Tuesday, August 30, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. 

to 1:00 p.m. at the Pitt County NCWorks Career Center located at 3101 Bismarck St, Greenville. 

Custodial and noncustodial parents will have the opportunity to meet face to face with employers 

searching for factory, industrial, customer service and food service positions. Resume assistance 

is available prior to the event.


The following employers will be represented: Mega Force, Parkers Barbecue, East Carolina Home Care, 

Hexacomb, ECVC and Disability Advocates & Resource Center.


“The goal of STEPP (Supporting, Training, & Employing Parents Program) is to accomplish dual 

self-sufficiency for both the noncustodial parent and the child support caretaker. We access needs, 

assets, and barriers to employment to help noncustodial parents become self-supporting so they can 

pay their court ordered child support obligations. Our program has partnered and worked with NC 

Works since the beginning of the program in April 2021,” says Sonya Scott, Family Support Services 

Program Administrator.


The purpose of DSS is to enable individuals to function at their maximum capacity, become 

self-sufficient, improve their standard of living, learn to cope adequately with their problems and 

provide preventive services that will avoid family breakup and enable individuals to remain in 

their own homes. STEPP contributes to that purpose by helping parents with employment assistance, 

job search training, career exploration, skills training, resume writing, educational support and 

tuition assistance.


For more information about the STEPP Job Fair call (252) 355-9067. To learn more about STEPP and 

other programs offered by Pitt County, call the Pitt County Department of Social Services at (252) 

902-1110.


The Mission of Pitt County Government is to enhance the health, safety, and well-being of our 

community by advocating for and providing quality services in a friendly and cost- effective 

manner. Learn more: www.PittCountyNC.gov
