U-M Family Helpers
U-M Family Helpers are University of Michigan students who are interested in providing occasional/short-term/part-time services to currently-affiliated U-M families. Each Family Helper has created a personal profile, and has passed a State of Michigan (only) background check. Any current U-M faculty, staff member, or student can contact a Family Helper to inquire. Rate of pay and other details are negotiated between the Family Helper and the U-M family.
Note: More-than-part-time job duties are not possible for most busy students. To find a caregiver who can provide more support for your family, please use other resources such as Care.com or Sittercity.com listings, nanny agencies (see Additional Child Care Resources, below), search for care at a licensed child care center or home (see Find Child Care Now, below), search for home health care agencies on the web, etc.
