The goal of this project is to train and retain individuals currently employed as paid Direct Care Workers (DCW) or acting as unpaid family and friend caregivers.

We have a goal to train 500 individuals in the following programs:

  • Advanced Caregiving
  • CNA - Nurse Assistant
  • HHA - Home Health Aide
  • RNA - Restorative Nurse Assistant
  • ESL for Healthcare
  • CPR Certification

We are also providing a free custom online learning platform to 100 organizations that contains a library of courses that may be used for orientation and training of employees. Courses that will be offered include caregiving techniques, effective communication, body mechanics, understanding and managing common health conditions, and self-care for caregivers.
