Direct Care Workers United for Change

From 2005 to 2014, Direct Care Alliance was the national advocacy voice of direct care workers in long-term care. We empowered workers to speak out for better wages, benefits, training, and working conditions, so more people can commit to direct care as a career. Shortly after we closed our doors, we found a new home with the National Domestic Workers Alliance. We hope you will join us there.


Got Coverage


Direct Care Alliance's Know Your Rights initiative informs and educates direct care workers nationwide about their rights under important laws and regulations, like the new home care final rule.


Please take this short (3-question) survey on NDWA's website to let them know if you want to keep fighting for home care workers.
