For 20-plus years, PHI has worked closely with the training program of its affiliated home care agency, Cooperative Home Care Associates.
Over that period, the collaboration has resulted in a highly successful learner-centered home care training program that results in the annual training and employment of approximately 400 underemployed Latina and African-American women from the South Bronx.
