HR & Recruitment Specialist

The Center for Caregiver Advancement (CCA) is an independent non-profit training organization serving nursing home workers and home care workers, founded in 2000 by the home care workers of SEIU Local 2015. Our mission is to provide educational opportunities to long-term care workers so they can build better lives and provide high quality care to the consumers they serve. As the largest provider of training for long-term care workers in California, CCA trains over 2,000 workers each year, primarily women and people of color, in six different languages.

With the wave of the baby boomers in or approaching retirement age, 10,000 people across the U.S. turn 65 each day – and will continue to for the next 15 years, rapidly increasing the need for long-term care workers. As policymakers look to address this crisis of care, we at CCA have the opportunity to advance and shine a light on the critical role trained long-term care workers play in improving quality of care for seniors and people with disabilities.
