The Need

Every day 1199SEIU home care workers provide essential services to thousands of elderly, infirm and disabled New Yorkers, allowing them to live independently in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

What We Do

The 1199SEIU Home Care Industry Education Fund offers academic and training opportunities to help home care workers provide their clients, including low-income seniors and people with disabilities, with the highest-quality care—all while reducing healthcare costs.

Through our wide range of programs and services, home care workers can develop their professional skills, advance in their careers and increase their earning potential. Available offerings include programs that will help them improve their English-language proficiency, prepare for the U.S. naturalization test, earn a high school equivalency diploma, prepare for college entrance exams and attend college.
