The Need

The 1199SEIU Home Care Industry Education Fund provides academic and training opportunities to help home care workers build careers and improve client care.

We offer a wide range of programs and services that enable workers to develop their professional skills, 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.

What We Do

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

Our programs give home care workers the education and specialized skills training they need to provide the highest-quality services. This supports the well-being of low-income seniors and people with disabilities, while reducing healthcare costs and increasing the earning power and career potential of this essential workforce.
