The Family-to-Family Support Posting Board is a resource to help families in our community connect to find in-kind, unpaid support (i.e., swapping and sharing of in-home services). Here you can post a request and your offer of support, or browse postings and send a reply.
Examples of types of requests and offers include:
- Before or after-school carpooling
- Occasional child care and play dates
- Elder care
When posting, you can request and offer unpaid support without disclosing such personal information as your full name or email. If you are interested in replying to a post, the form used discloses your umich email to the original poster. At that point, it’s up to the person who originally made the post to reply and continue the conversation. Please use your best discretion when considering any replies you may receive. Continuing via your umich email or other means is completely your decision.
To View Posts or to Submit and Manage a Post, you will need to affirm that you have read the Family-to-Family Support Posting Board disclaimer and login with your umich web login. Best of luck in building new connections and finding ways to support one another.
