Direct Care Workers United for Change

Direct Care Alliance is the national advocacy voice of direct care workers in long-term care. We empower workers to speak out for better wages, benefits, training, and working conditions, so more people can commit to direct care as a career. We also convene powerful allies nationwide to build consensus for change.



Know Your Rights

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. Stay tuned for more information!
