Affordable Employee Training Exclusively for NJBIA Members LEARN MORE

Home Helpers Home Care of Monmouth County, a leader in the in-home care industry, is helping to create career pathways by partnering with New Jersey community colleges’ efforts to provide quality training programs for desperately needed healthcare jobs. 

As part of the New Jersey Pathways to Career Opportunities initiative, Home Helpers Home Care of Monmouth County is interviewing candidates for the Certified Home Health Aide Training Program. Applicants selected will be eligible to receive a scholarship for their training. Anyone interested in this opportunity can apply for the trainee program here. 

“This is an exciting project that has the potential to make a significant positive impact in our community,” Home Helpers Home Care President Howard Stein said. “Our community needs both opportunities for above living wage jobs and our healthcare system needs trained and certified healthcare workers to meet the growing demands in our community.” 

The NJ Pathways is an initiative of the state’s 18 community colleges and NJBIA, who have brought together educational institutions, employers, labor unions and workforce organizations to provide students and adult learners with the career pathways for well-paying jobs that fill employers’ critical workforce needs. 

“When an employer can partner with great educators like our local community college Brookdale and the Monmouth County Vocational School District it is a win-win,” Stein said. “We have the unique and real opportunity to create better paying entry-level jobs, career pathways to skilled jobs like nursing, and add workers where they are desperately needed.”   

The healthcare industry is experiencing a shortage of workers at every level, creating a crisis significantly impacted by COVID-19. The American Hospital Association estimates the industry will need to hire at least 200,000 nurses a year to meet the accelerated demands of an aging population. Among support personnel, a shortage of home health aides is most critical. 

The Pathways Initiative has created a statewide cross-sector education ecosystem connected to industry and now has over 1,200 education and industry partners since its launch in December 2021. 

This statewide collaborative approach to education and workforce training innovation has been supported by substantial investments from Gov. Phil Murphy and the Legislature. Pathways has been expanding stackable credential pathways for people in all stages of their lives and careers and building an innovative workforce in four key industries:  

  • Health Services 
  • Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management 
  • Technology and Innovation 
  • Infrastructure and Energy
