We want to help YOU get paid!
Collecting back child support doesn't need to feel impossible.
Athena is built to help.
I built Athena because every single month that a noncustodial parent doesn't pay child support, they are quite literally FORCING the custodial parent to float them a loan for their share of their child's care. Millions of women go through this every day and I want to put an end to it.
Simone SpenceFounder and CEO
As a kid, I was fascinated by the power of the media to communicate to a broad audience in order to inform and entertain. We are shining a spotlight on a problem that has been in the shadows for far too long.
Simone's experience in the back child support collection space and her passion for the work she is doing is contagious. I knew I wanted to be her right-hand woman and assist her as she leads the charge on helping women collect back child support.
I believe mothers have the most difficult, thankless job you can have. Not getting their child support makes that job infinitely harder, and I want to help make their lives easier. They deserve better than to let deadbeats get away with not paying their fair share of raising a family.
Athena offers me the chance to participate in restorative justice. Every new day is an opportunity improve the way we help mothers get the back child support they are owed.
People do not realize the enormous financial/emotional weight that goes into raising children and when that rests on only one parent's shoulders, it can be extremely challenging. I want to help change that!
