Workforce Development Must be a Priority:MHCA knows that recruitment and retention of direct care workers is a top concern for members. An increasing demand for services due to an aging population and a declining supply of individuals seeking careers in this profession are factors responsible for the workforce challenges faced by our members. It will take a significant effort to attract, recruit and retain skilled workers to meet future demands and MHCA is dedicated to supporting members in their efforts to find and train quality staff.
