Steering Committee: Capital Impact Partners sits on a national steering committee that investigates how homecare cooperatives can be replicated. As part of this project, the steering committee will now address the specific working concerns of older female workers, informing the development of CIP’s business plan and market analysis. The steering committee includes partners such as the Cooperative Development Foundation and technical assistance providers.
Train the Trainer Approach: In determining how to train home care workers, teaching workers to train other workers has been identified as the most likely to promote sustainability of the cooperatives. CIP is building capacity with the train the trainer model by evaluating the most effective training platforms, comprehensive communication channels, and methods for determining training proficiency.
