Mission

All people and communities have the right to a healthy, dignified quality of life. Yet so many immigrants are working in jobs that cannot meet their basic needs and living in unhealthy environments because they are isolated, disempowered, and overwhelmed by their daily struggle to work and put food on the table. They become victims of wage theft, human trafficking, occupational safety hazards, unhealthy lifestyles and their own despair. PWC focuses on providing programs that help meet the immediate needs of workers and their families while at the same time building their leadership to take collective action for long last change.

C.O.U.R.A.G.E. (Caregivers Project)

C.O.U.R.A.G.E. (Caregivers Organizing for Unity Respect and Genuine Empowerment) is a program that empowers Caregivers through knowledge, leadership development, individual case management, alliance building, advocacy and self-help projects. The program educates caregivers about their labor rights and assists them in upholding those rights through legal assistance. COURAGE also provides professional skills trainings that help to increase their ability to secure employment, as well as occupational health and safety training to protect their physical and mental well-being. This program is designed to also educate the public and elected officials about the plight of many caregivers in order to advocate for strengthening the laws and enforcement procedures that protect household workers. In addition, COURAGE is developing a worker-owned cooperative that will raise the wages and working conditions of caregivers, as well as bring many of them out of isolation in a truly empowering and dignified way. At the same time it will raise the standard of quality care for the elderly and disabled population.
