Providing Quality Care through Quality Jobs

The largest worker-owned cooperative in the nation, we train over 600 low-income women every year to provide home care services to New Yorkers who are elderly, chronically ill, or living with disabilities in their communities.

Who we are

Cooperative Home Care Associates (CHCA) is a nationally recognized, worker-owned home care agency in the Bronx. CHCA was founded in 1985 to provide quality home care to clients by providing quality jobs for direct-care workers.

CHCA started with 12 home health aides. The cooperative now employs more than 2,000 staff. Together with PHI, a nonprofit founded by CHCA in 1992, CHCA maintains an employer-based workforce development program that provides free training for over 600 low-income and unemployed women annually and serves as a significant driver of employment in the Bronx.

Our Mission

Together, we strive to achieve the following goals:

  1. To provide reliable, high quality home health care services for those who are elderly, chronically ill, or living with disabilities;
  2. To offer the highest possible salaries and benefits while building a profitable worker-owned company;
  3. To give workers opportunities to learn and grow as members of a health care team.

Our reliable service helps keep clients in their home

We are a licensed home care agency that provides high-quality, reliable services to people who are elderly, chronically ill, or living with disabilities. CHCA provides services throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx to people approved for home care by medicaid, those who are privately insured or private pay. We also operate as a Fiscal Intermediary for approved consumer directed (CDPAP) services.

By providing high-quality home care jobs, Cooperative Home Care Associates is committed to improving both the lives of direct-care providers and the lives of the clients who rely on their quality care and support.

Training & Employment

We offer free, four-week home health aide training in both English and Spanish. Classes take place at 400 East Fordham Road in the Bronx and run Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Graduates of the training program receive dual certification as a Certified Home Health Aide and Personal Care Assistant, with guaranteed employment through CHCA.

Graduates of the training program receive mentoring from Home Health Aides with extensive amount of experience in the field. The mentors are well-versed with the policies of the company and can serve as support for encouraging your problem solving skills. This program allows for a successful transition from training to working with the clients we service.

We believe that the quality of our home care services depends on the training and ongoing support we provide to our employees. CHCA’s training program graduates are employed in jobs that recognize the dignity of their work and its value to the community, with: above-average wages, full-time hours, opportunities for career advancement and worker-ownership, and extensive employment supports.

A force for the good of the workers, customers, community, and environment

In 2012, CHCA became the first home care company to earn a B Corp certification. As a certified B Corp, we make a public commitment to considering the impact our decisions have on our employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment.

CHCA stands behind its mission and its ongoing commitment to provide quality care to the residents in the NY Metropolitan area requiring home health care. We strongly believe it is accomplished by investing in the workforce.
