Starr Commonwealth Named Amongst Best NonProfits to Work for in 2022

Starr Commonwealth has been ranked nationally as the 20th best nonprofit to work for in 2022 by The NonProfit Times.

This is the third consecutive year the leader in healing trauma and building resilience in children was named to the list, which is compiled in conjunction with Best Companies Group and recognizes organizations that are leaders in creating quality workplaces. Of 50 nonprofits recognized on this year’s list, Starr Commonwealth ranks 20thnationwide.

Honorees submit a survey, which evaluates an organization’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. Employees are also given a survey to measure their experience.

Best Nonprofits to Work For were those like Starr that scored exceptionally high when it came to leadership and planning, culture and communications, work environment, pay and benefits, and other key factors.

“Organizations are only as strong as the people who live and breathe their mission each day,” said President and CEO Elizabeth Carey. “From our first recognition from The NonProfit Times in 2020 to today’s honor, every individual at Starr Commonwealth has helped propel us forward. Being named among the Best NonProfits To Work For is a testament to the care our staff brings to our collective passion of creating positive experiences so that all children, families, and communities can flourish. I couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of them.”

From its headquarters in Albion, Michigan, Starr Commonwealth blends three key focuses – healing trauma, addressing racism, and fostering positive growth – into a comprehensive model of working with youth that is unique in the nation. Unlike other agencies that focus on trauma and resilience, Starr offers tangible tools for teachers, social workers, healthcare professionals, and others on the front line of working with children.

Through its training and coaching programs, childcare professionals, clinicians, educators, and parents have access to Starr’s highly successful and innovative techniques aimed at bringing out the best in every child, parent, and community. Many of its classes are available online.
