PHI and CHCA offer entry-level home health aide training in both English and Spanish at a state-of-the-art training facility in the Bronx. PHI and CHCA provide double the 75 hours of training required by federal and state regulations, to ensure that trainees learn the many clinical and interpersonal skills required for success in home care. Clinical skills acquired through this program cover preventive health, bathing, transport, and meal preparation. 

Training also includes coaching in relational competencies identified as critical to the career success of individuals entering the direct care field, such as respectful communication and problem-solving, which are key aspects of the PHI Coaching Approach® developed by PHI. Program graduates are dual-certified as Personal Care Aides and Home Health Aides, maximizing their ability to support clients across care settings and expanding confidence within their new roles.

CHCA employs a full-time Case Manager for Young Adults to work with them through recruitment, training, and employment to support goal-setting and address the unique challenges younger jobseekers face transitioning to employment. CHCA leads regular Rap Sessions for young adult direct care workers, bringing them together for group and on-on-one coaching sessions to discuss their activities in the field, problem-solve, and review strategies for success. All front-line administrative staff at CHCA have also received specialized training in skills for supporting young adults.
