Children’s Hope Alliance is a great place to work because of the wonderful work we do to help children and families in North Carolina. We have a competitive salary and benefits package with opportunities for growth and advancement. The staff is a fun, dynamic group of people that support each other. Below are some highlights of our benefits. A more comprehensive explanation of benefits is available during the interview process.

PAID TIME OFF

Because we have programs that operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we combine holidays, vacation, sick time, and personal time together as Paid Time Off (PTO). PTO is earned based on years of service as follows for full-time employees:

  • 0 – 2 years – 26 days per year
  • 2 – 5 years – 30 days per year
  • 5 – 10 years – 35 days per year
  • 10+ years – 37 days per year

PTO rolls over from year to year. Employees are allowed to accrue up to 7.5 times their standard work week (usually 300 hours).

MEDICAL INSURANCE

Children’s Hope Alliance pays the majority of the premium for coverage on all employees working 30 hours or more per week. Services are provided by United Healthcare. Medical insurance for dependents is available.

LIFE INSURANCE

Children’s Hope Alliance provides a $20,000 policy for each full time employee. Additional coverage is offered for employees and dependents through The Hartford and can be deducted from your payroll.

DISABILITY INSURANCE

Children’s Hope Alliance provides long term disability coverage which will pay 60% of base salary until retirement age for all full time employees, beginning on the 91st day of disability. Short-term disability coverage can also be added through The Hartford.

ADDITIONAL INSURANCE

Employees have the option to purchase the additional insurance coverage for themselves or their dependents. Packages include:

  • Dental
  • Vision
  • Accident
  • Cancer
  • Critical Illness
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Legal/ID Shield

RETIREMENT

A Tax Deferred Annuity Plan is available to provide funds for employee retirement. This plan is also known as a 403(b) Plan.  Employees can start saving to their retirement account as soon as their first paycheck. After one year of service, the agency contributes to the employee’s account by matching 50% up to an 8% contribution.  The agency will at it descretion contribute an additional 2% for qualifying employees.
