Vermont Homecare United/AFSCME strives, in cooperation with consumers, to create a system that provides quality care, respect, and independence. It is part of national AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees), with 1.6 million members. AFSCME is recognized as one of the most powerful and effective unions in the nation. Our members have worked with agencies and consumer groups to ensure home care systems are adequately funded by state legislatures in California, Iowa, Maryland, New York and elsewhere. AFSCME has successfully mobilized to defend increase home care funding, most recently by winning an increased federal match, called FMAP, from the federal government.
