Employer Success Story

"The Gratiot-Isabella RESD (GIRESD) Board of Education decided to join the Tri-Share pilot program to attract and retain quality workers," says Martin Combs, GIRESD associate superintendent for special services.

"Now, more than ever, we are aware that child care is a barrier to employment. We are grateful to have the opportunity to support, invest in and retain our talent through Tri-Share," says Combs. "We've seen quite a bit of interest in the program and it's clear that many families could benefit. We strongly encourage other businesses to join us in piloting this program."

Participating employers must agree to identify and recruit eligible employees, provide employer portions of each participating employee's child care costs, and maintain communication with the facilitator hub regarding each employee's continued employment and eligibility.
