For the last 8 years, CDF and its partners have developed sustainable home care cooperatives through quality technical assistance, rigorous research, and data-driven analysis. While we have provided the framework for the development and sharing of resources, it is really the co-op members that implement the work – responding to customer and business realities, creating policies that center workers, and advocating for the needs of caregivers and the people they serve.
