A force for the good of the workers, customers, community, and environment.
We are a licensed home care agency that provides high-quality, reliable services to people who are elderly, chronically ill, or living with disabilities. CHCA provides services throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx to people approved for home care by medicaid, those who are privately insured or private pay. We also operate as a Fiscal Intermediary for approved consumer directed (CDPAP) services.
By providing high-quality home care jobs, Cooperative Home Care Associates is committed to improving both the lives of direct-care providers and the lives of the clients who rely on their quality care and support.
In 2012, CHCA became the first home care company to earn a B Corp certification. As a certified B Corp, we make a public commitment to considering the impact our decisions have on our employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment.
CHCA stands behind its mission and its ongoing commitment to provide quality care to the residents in the NY Metropolitan area requiring home health care. We strongly believe it is accomplished by investing in the workforce.
