Care is a global need without geographic or demographic boundaries.  At some point, every person and every family will have care needs, whether for children, seniors, pets or even homes.  Our mission is to be there to help families find quality care solutions that meet their unique needs and for caregivers to find meaningful work.

Founder and CEO Sheila Lirio Marcelo had a goal of transforming the way families and businesses around the world address their care needs.  Care.com launched in the U.S. in 2007 and today, as the largest online care destination in the world with more than 8 million members across 16 countries, we are making that goal achievable. 

Care.com’s premise is simple:  families looking for care post job descriptions and/or search our extensive database of providers to find their perfect match and care providers post their profiles highlighting their skills and expertise, while also searching jobs that have been posted.  For families seeking other options such as day care, nanny and home care agencies, or tutoring centers, businesses in the care space are also accessible on the site. 

We understand that care is an exceptionally personal matter and impacts the most important aspect of families’ lives which is why we provide an array of services and resources to help families make safer and more informed hiring decisions.  The Care.com Safety Center offers a comprehensive Safety Guide, which details numerous tools, resources and tips to assist families through the search and hiring process. Through a third-party, we also offer three tiers of background checks which vary in comprehensiveness.  

The growth of Care.com’s global footprint began in 2012 when we launched in the UK and Canada, followed by the acquisition of Berlin-based Besser Betreut, the largest online care portal in Europe.  In every territory in which we operate, the fundamental service remains the same but is tailored to meet the unique cultural needs of its membership.

As Care.com has grown, so has the scope of the products and services we offer.  Through our Workplace Solutions business, approximately 150 companies and institutions, including Fortune 500 companies and businesses spanning a variety of industries, currently offer our services to employees as part of their benefit packages.  Care.com HomePay SM, offered by Breedlove & Associates, which we acquired in 2012, allows our members to access the nation’s largest provider of comprehensive household payroll services.  In-home back-up care – a growing segment of the care space for consumers and for employers corporations as an employee benefit through our Workplace Solutions business – is now available on our site through the experts at Parents in a Pinch, which we also acquired in 2012.  And, ever mindful of the businesses that employ care professionals, in 2012, we launched Care.com Recruiting Solutions, a first-of-its-kind recruiting platform for the care industry.

At Care.com, There for YouSM isn’t just our mission, it’s our passion.  As a one-stop-shop for families and businesses to meet all their care needs, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. Our goal is to provide as many options as possible so everyone can find the care that best fits their unique needs.
