Welcome to the Work/Life Resource Center

The Work/Life Resource Center is a starting point for the University of Michigan community to learn about resources and tools to promote work/life balance: child care and elder care resources, educational programs, and consultation on flexible scheduling.

A newer program is our U-M Family Helpers -- a listing of U-M students and U-M benefits-eligible retirees who are available for child/elder care, yard work, tutoring, housekeeping, pet/house sitting, and more!

If you are a current U-M affiliate — full- or part-time faculty, staff or student — we can help guide you to resources and programs including:

  • PARENTING & LACTATION INFORMATION
  • CHILD CARE & KIDS KARE AT HOME
  • ELDER CARE
  • FLEXIBLE WORK ARRANGEMENTS
  • U-M FAMILY HELPERS
  • EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS & ANNUAL WORK/LIFE CONFERENCE
