1199SEIU Bill MIchelson Home Care Education Fund
1199SEIU home care workers provide essential services to thousands of elderly, infirm and disabled New Yorkers each and every day. Their work allows home care clients to live independently in the comfort and safety of their own homes. The 1199SEIU Bill Michelson Home Care Education Fund is a 501(c)3 organization that helps workers obtain the education they need to improve their careers and to enhance the quality of services they provide. The Fund gives workers access to a wide range of programs and services so they can improve English language skills, earn GEDs, prepare for college entrance exams, attend college, and take professional development courses. The 1199SEIU Bill Michelson Homecare Education Fund is a unique partnership between labor and management. Working together, the Fund is able to target programs to meet the needs of the industry, workers and clients. The results: an improved quality of life for home care workers and their clients and a stronger home care industry that is able to serve everincreasing community needs.
