Consumer Direct Care Network Washington

Consumer Direct Care Network Washington (CDWA) thanks the thousands of dedicated Individual Providers (IP) who have completed the hiring process to continue to provide in-home personal care and respite services. We know some who need assistance with the Consumer Directed Employer (CDE) transition are waiting to be helped. We are working as quickly and efficiently as possible to respond to customer service inquiries. We appreciate your patience and look forward to serving you as we complete the CDE transition by summer of 2022.

CDWA is Washington’s Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) CDE. As the CDE, CDWA is part of the Home Care Workers Purpose Trust. The trust promotes good working conditions, economic security for workers, and worker voice and influence in the home care industry.
