Helping Heels is a resource for UNC-Chapel Hill faculty, staff and students to find part-time child care, pet care, and elder care from fellow Tar Heels. The list is updated every fall, spring and summer semester.

About Helping Heels

Since fall 2020, the list is provided in dual partnership between the UNC-Chapel Hill Department or Work/Life & Wellness and the Carolina COVID-19 Student Services Corps (Carolina CSSC) supported the Office of Human Resources and the Office of the Provost.

PLEASE NOTE: The responsibility for screening potential caregivers rests solely and completely with the person hiring them. Work/Life & Wellness, nor the Office of the Provost, screens the Helping Heels caregivers listed.
