Employees waiting for pay from home healthcare service

Harrisburg

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Employees of a home health care service in Harrisburg say they have not been paid in more than four weeks.

Samira Randolph was among dozens of caregivers who stopped by Sweet Home Healthcare’s office in Kline Village on Monday. She said going without pay created a major financial hardship.

“People were threatening to take flat screens and computers. They want their money,” ​Randolph said. “I had to go to the food bank to get food for my kids. I have had to call people and get extensions on stuff.”

The Philadelphia-based company receives funding from Medicaid to provide services to people in the Harrisburg area. Sweet Home Healthcare officials in Harrisburg refused to comment.

A spokesperson for the Department of Human Services said DHS is ​monitoring the situation.

ABC27 reached out to the attorney general’s office to find out if there is an investigation but has not received a response.​
