Cooperative Home Care Associates (CHCA) is a nationally recognized, worker-owned home care agency in the Bronx. CHCA was founded in 1985 to provide quality home care to clients by providing quality jobs for direct-care workers.
CHCA started with 12 home health aides. The cooperative now employs more than 2,000 staff. Together with PHI, a nonprofit founded by CHCA in 1992, CHCA maintains an employer-based workforce development program that provides free training for 600 low-income and unemployed women annually and serves as a significant driver of employment in the Bronx.
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.
