We Are a Nonprofit Dedicated to Healthcare Training for our Communities and Better Care for Seniors

What if we could lift up two of our most vulnerable populations—seniors and those living in systemic poverty—with just one mission? That’s the driving force behind Dwyer Workforce Development. By providing individuals who are unemployed and under-employed with career training and job placement in the senior healthcare industry, we are creating life-changing employment opportunities in our community and better care for seniors, all in one.

Improving the Lives of Seniors

94%

of nursing homes
need staff now

According to a recent survey conducted by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), 94% of nursing homes need staff now. By creating a pipeline of well-trained and compassionate employees we can ensure better care for the seniors in our various communities’ skilled nursing and assisted living facilities.
