The Houseparent Network

I have completed the 2016 Salary Comparison and it appears that salaries have increased again this year, especially on the lower end. However, when you think about salaries think about the following excerpt from this years survey.
"You also need to remember that when considering a position there are many more considerations than just salary. You also have to consider benefits, schedule, living accommodations, and the difficulty of the children you are caring for. If one facility pays a salary of $35,000 per year and also provides full family health insurance, you will be better off than a facility that pays $45,000 and only pays toward your individual insurance. In our situation, we were paying over $10,000 a year for family health insurance prior to accepting our current position, we now pay less than a $1,000. That is an instant pay raise of over $9,000. A good retirement plan can also add several thousand dollars to a salary each year. Look at the whole package, not just the salary."
