TRPIL Community Services Training for Direct Care Workers (DCWs)

Our workforce of Direct Care Workers support individuals with disabilities to live independently in the community.

Direct care work is not just a job -- it is a rewarding career path.

DCW Training Program

Our training is supported by TRPIL's purpose and values: that people with disabilities have the right to determine how to live independently in their community.

The Direct Care Worker Training Center focuses on the core competencies needed for quality and consumer-directed care:

DCW Job Requirements


(The only people ineligible to provide direct care for consumers are their spouses, legal guardians, and those who serve as their powers of attorney.)


The number of hours a DCW can work with a consumer is determined by guidelines established through the Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) and Department of Health. Referrals for in-home care are made through the Area Agency on Aging and funded by Medicaid.

Currently, TRPIL serves 600-625 consumers, with 558 DCWs on the payroll.
