Starr Commonwealth Again Recognized as One of Best Nonprofits to Work For

For the fourth consecutive year, Starr Commonwealth has been named one of the Best Nonprofits to Work For in 2023 by the NonProfit Times. 

The leader in providing trauma-informed care and services to children and families was one of 50 organizations recognized as a nonprofit leader in creating quality workplaces. Honorees demonstrate exceptional commitment to leadership and planning, culture and communications, work environment and other key factors. 

“We are honored and proud to once again be recognized as one of the best nonprofits to work for,” said Elizabeth Carey, president and CEO of Starr Commonwealth. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team as well as Starr’s commitment to honoring employees as our greatest asset and creating a workplace culture that fosters growth, collaboration and well-being. 

“This award is especially gratifying as we celebrate our 110th anniversary of providing hope and healing to children struggling with the effects of trauma. We will continue to invest in our employees as we strive to fulfill our mission of leading with courage to create positive experiences so all children, families and communities flourish.” 

Starr Commonwealth was evaluated based on its policies, practices and demographics as well as employee feedback on workplace satisfaction. Starr’s commitment to employee development, diversity, equity, inclusion and work-life balance was highlighted in its selection to the list. 

From its headquarters in Albion, Starr blends three key focuses – healing trauma, addressing racism and encouraging 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 also offers tangible tools for teachers, social workers, health care professionals, public safety officers and others on the frontline of working with children. Many of its classes and resources are available online.
