Why Your Contribution Matters

Home health care aides provide essential care to members of our community most in need. In the past year, these indispensable care givers have faced increased risks to their physical, mental, and financial well-being as they have battled on the frontline of this pandemic. Lack of public awareness and support, along with insufficient access to information, put them at increased risk of contracting Covid-19. Concerns about their finances (from not being able to work), their health, and their patients were prevalent if not overwhelming.

In the best of pre-pandemic times, even home care workers who are fortunate to enjoy the benefits of 1199SEIU membership struggle to earn a living wage while working long, unpredictable hours performing tasks that are physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging.

The Value of Your Contribution

Your sponsorship of this event supports education for home care workers enabling them to advance into higher paying healthcare jobs. Your contribution will help change the life of someone who has worked so hard to bring comfort and dignity to the lives of others. Thank you for helping us give back to those who do so much for the ones we love.
