Rewarding Work Directory Solves Care-giving Dilemmas for Children with Disabilities

Inviting a new person into your home to care for you or a family member is a far more personal matter than asking someone to clean your home or do carpentry.  And searching for someone to care for a vulnerable child with a disability, who has difficulty communicating, is even more daunting.  Cassandra Z of Whitman solved this challenge through the RewardingWork directory.

Did you know about Massachusetts CORIs?


After you have identified, interviewed and checked references on a PCA and are now prepared to offer employment, did you know you can conduct a CORI on that person for free?

If you or a family member are 60-years of age or over or are "wholly or partially dependent on others to meet your daily living needs," you may request Massachusetts Criminal History Information on the worker you wish to hire. There is no fee assessed for requests submitted for this purpose. You and your prospective PCA will need to sign and notarize a request form.

Massachusetts CORIs do not provide national criminal information. Information provided covers only a person's Massachusetts criminal history. For additional information contact the Massachusetts Criminal History Systems Board at 617-660-4600 or download an online form.
