How do I find a worker?
There are many ways to go about hiring a domestic worker.
Check out the list of National Domestic Workers Alliance-affiliated worker-run hiring halls and coops, which can be found in a growing number of cities. Check to see if your home city has a hiring hall or co-op in the list below.
Turn to trusted sources, such as friends, family, or people within your network who have the same care and employment needs as you, and can provide relevant advice and support.
Check out community listserves; current and future employers, especially parent employers, will often post information about domestic worker opportunities on these lists, including nanny shares.
And if none of these options work, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
