What is the
Health Careers Program?

Health Careers Program (HCP) is an initiative by Action for a Better Community (ABC) that provides case management and supportive services to low-income individuals who desire to work in the healthcare industry.

This program was developed to respond to, and prepare for, the healthcare employment challenges created by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
