We get it.
The National Domestic Workers Alliance has been working for the respect and dignity of domestic workers (house cleaners, nannies, and caregivers) for over a decade, so we're very familiar with the hesitations a domestic worker might have in signing up for benefits, especially when she has probably never had benefits before.
There's a lot of information that you can share with the person who cleans your home, to help them feel more comfortable that Alia is an organization that was created for them.
- Alia is powered by the National Domestic Workers Alliance, a nonprofit for domestic workers. NDWA's mission is to fight for the dignity and respect of domestic workers, and their work covers many areas that affect domestic workers, such as proposing a Domestic Worker Bill of Rights that has been passed in Oregon, Illinois, New York, California, Nevada, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Hawaii.
- Alia's supporters include Google.org, whose Economic Opportunity portfolio is to "power an economy in which more people have an opportunity to thrive."
- Alia is being used by domestic workers today. We created this video (includes Spanish subtitles) with a real house cleaner and a real client: no actors, no script. They're both real people who use Alia, and there are many more like them!
It's true, when someone offers something like benefits to someone who has never had them before, it's natural that there might be some questions, and we welcome them all. We're happy to answer any additional questions by phone at (315) 636-0067 or by text at (415) 991-7007.
