What is Direct Care Careers?

Direct Care Careers is a free, national website that provides individuals (1) access to jobs with potential employers, (2) access to resources to develop their skills, and (3) access to trainings to increase competence. The job matching tool uses a matching algorithm to pair licensed and/or trained workers with healthcare and LTSS employers that need their specific skills. This website was created by ADvancing States and Altarum, in partnership with participating States/Territories.
