2014 Salary & Fringe Benefit Survey OPEN for submissions

The Michigan Federation for Children and Families' 2014 Salary and Fringe Benefit Survey will be OPEN for participation between now and April 24, 2014. We encourage nonprofit child and family service provider agencies to participate. 

New this year....

  • The survey is STREAMLINED compared to prior years based on input from Federation member agency CEOs and HR directors. Some questions were removed, others were re-phrased, several are new.
  • An amazingly USER-FRIENDLY data entry EXCEL file…check it out…NO PESKY MACROS.
  • Lastly, this survey will be conducted EVERY OTHER YEAR instead of annually (unless there is an overwhelming call for it to remain annual betwen now and next year).

Please choose the participation method—hard copy or Excel file—that works best for you.  

Please make this important survey a priority! The summary report of this survey is highly valuable and is the only one of its kind in scope of detail specific to the human services field in Michigan.

NOTE: Federation member agencies participate at no cost; non-Federation agencies participate for a modest fee to help cover data entry and report preparation costs (see Intent to Participate form).

May & June: Michigan Education and Training Voucher Program (ETV) Training across the State of Michigan

Lutheran Social Services, Department of Human Services, and Fostering Success Michigan will soon be hosting five regional trainings across the State of Michigan. Each training will cover the Michigan Education and Training Voucher Program (ETV), the educational needs and requirements for children and youth in care, and various college resources for Foster Youth.

Registration is now available on JJOLT In-Service Training at: http://www.michiganchildwelfaretraining.com, search for Educational Requirements and College Resources. Attached is a flyer with dates, locations, and times…so mark your calendars now! SPACE IS LIMITED!!

This is a great opportunity for workers to learn about the resources available for foster youth who are aging out and pursuing college, as well as how foster youth can best be served to ensure they make it to post-secondary programs.

Registration is open! 2014 Michigan Teen Conference - Take Charge of Your Journey

Do you know a youth in Foster Care or Independent Living who needs to learn about money management, employment, educational opportunities, healthy relationships, or housing? If you do, then help them pre-register for the 2014 Michigan Teen Conference.

Youth must be ages 14 to 21 and in Foster Care or Independent Living. If attendees are under the age of 18, a chaperone MUST attend the conference with them and accompany them at all times. Caretakers of the youth and professionals who work with teens are also invited. Attendees will sharpen their understanding of what is available and required for foster youth to make the challenging transition to adult life.
