Finance Manager – California Long Term Care Education Center – Los Angeles, CA

Finance Manager (Full-Time)

The California Long-Term Care Education Center (CLTCEC) is an educational organization providing education and career ladder opportunities for homecare workers of California. The Center is funded through a combination of contributions, private and public grants. CLTCEC is dedicated to providing educational opportunities as tools of empowerment for long-term care workers to build better lives, provide quality care and meet and invest in the critical needs of the long-term care workforce.

CLTCEC received a 3-year, $11.8 million grant in July 2012 from the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), made possible under the Affordable Care Act. The award is funding a pilot project in Los Angeles, Contra Costa and other counties to train an estimated 6,000 In-Home Supportive Service (IHSS) workers to be fully integrated into their client’s health care team. It is expected that the integration of IHSS workers into the care team of an IHSS beneficiary will improve care, maintain constant or even improve the health of these patients thereby reducing their risks of institutional care and ultimately, reduce the programmatic cost.
