COMING SOON - 2022

1st Caregiver Cooperative in the District of Columbia

 

The name of the organization is DC CareWorks Community Cooperative. It will be the first independent group of Caregivers united voluntarily to meet their everyday economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise, East of the River.

 

CareWorks is in the startup phase.

 

CareWorks will provide services to its membership, inclusive of caregivers and care recipients, that help solve individual and community caregiving needs.

 

Data:

  • Approximately 75,000 caregivers in Washington DC, primarily serving or residing in Wards 7 & 8.

  • Almost 60% of caregivers are low-income women of color, and more than 80% of caregivers lack training and support.

 

Currently, we are collaborating with the ICA Group, Cooperative Development Foundation, and DC Long Term Care Coalition to conduct Marketing Landscape and Feasibility Analyses.
