Key Source Pro Se Consulting and Training

Who We Are

Key Source, Pro Se Consulting & Training is a community based Pro Se (self-represented) coaching service for those who seek help in learning how to effectively navigate systems to self-manage existing matters such as: child support, debt management and parental rights & responsibilities.

About our training

K.E.Y.S. (Keep Empowering Your Self) is a pro se literacy program that delivers monthly informational workshops in the community.  Participants receive information and guidance on how to reduce and eliminate barriers to employment, housing, education and parenting time by effectively navigating existing resources to achieve desired outcomes.

Fatherhood Mission

With the majority of its workshop participants being non-custodial fathers Key Source recognized early on the need for healthy parenting information support for custodial and non-custodial fathers.

Key Source believes that taking ownership of one’s responsibility as a father, coupled with effective communication will foster close connections between fathers and their children.  The  “Sharing Parenthood” topic intends to help break poverty cycles related to fatherless, single parent homes  which could be achieved by the elimination of system induced counter-productivity.   Our program is unique in that it provides a direct link between the role of a responsible father in the lives of his children and the steps he needs to take by understanding the process of receiving authorized access to their children that could allow a father to become more nurturing and responsible as a caretaker of his children.

Child Support Navigation

Fathers need work opportunities in order to have the means to support their children.  Custodial and Non-custodial parents who connect to their children, first emotionally, and then financially, have a stronger job retention and stronger motivation to make a difference in their children’s lives. The K.E.Y.S. program helps non-custodial parents understand and navigate the child support system by facilitating workshops and trainings to explain their rights and responsibilities as non-custodial parents. Key Source also works as a mediator between the Obligor (typically the absent parent) and the Child Support Agencies to balance orders that are often in arrears. By agreement, custodial and non-custodial parents learn how to take the appropriate action steps to reconcile their arrearages with livable wage jobs and keep current on their child support payments where possible.  Much more work needs to be done to fix systems that often work counter-productively.

Key Source Client Testimonial

An unsolicited testimonial from a North Star client:


"Good morning Ms. Motley

First I would like to start off by saying thank you for everything you did yesterday. You were wonderful. The passion and concern you had when you spoke yesterday was real but unreal if that makes sense. The knowledge that you gave out is invaluable. Most men in the Cleveland community don't know even know how to gain access to information or aware of programs for men.


I'm seeking any and all information and knowledge that is beneficial to me that will give me the ability to see or visit my son without feeling stressed. I just want to be a positive influence in my sons life and spend the time with him I never had with my father. If you can help me or lead me in the right direction I would gladly accept. I am employed so if payment is needed let me know. Thank you again. You are such a blessing to so many people. A strong woman doing great things in the community! Thanks!"
