Vision to Action: Advancing the Child Support Program into the Social Safety Net

Erin Frisch

Title IV-D Director 

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Office of Child Support

Erin Frisch became the Title IV-D Director for Michigan and Director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Office of Child Support (OCS) in 2012. She also co-leads the MDHHS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council- a role she has had since 2019. She is on a mission to make the world a better place by celebrating equity and inclusion while leading the Michigan child support program in its work with parents to improve all children’s lives.


She is a hands-on, results oriented leader who views her highest priority as serving those she leads. Erin’s knowledge of the child support program is extensive and combined with her commitment to anti-oppression, she is regularly asked to speak at both national and local levels on both subjects.


Erin served from 2019-2020 as Senior Chief Deputy for Opportunity at MDHHS where she oversaw the children’s services agency, the bureau of community services, and the economic stability administration and focused on integration between public assistance programs and health, community services, child support and child welfare to reduce poverty for Michiganders.


Erin is a former President of the National Council of Child Support Directors and Board Secretary for NCSEA. 


Erin graduated from James Madison College at Michigan State University. She spent 12 years in IT consulting before joining state service. When not coming up with new ideas or creating positive change, you can usually find her playing video games with her son or cooking with her daughter.
