Public Authority In-Home Supportive Services

San Joaquin County ~ COVID-19 Updated


Do you enjoy helping people? Do you like creating your desired work hours? If so the IHSS Public Authority Registry might be the perfect fit for you! The Registry is a referral service that provides assistance to IHSS Recipients with finding, screening, and hiring homecare Providers.  The Registry helps match a Recipient’s needs with an applicant’s availability, and preferences. 


​Who doesn't love to save money?! IHSS and WPCS Providers can now save on having to buy stamps by enrolling in the ETS system.  (Recipient must also be enrolled to approve timesheets online)

A Recipient is one who is approved for IHSS and is eligible to have a caregiver. Our website offers videos that may help you hire and supervise your provider. 

The Public Authority can also supply you with a list of potential Providers, that you can request by calling our office.

Are you already providing care for an IHSS Recipient? You can now sign up to be a their caregiver online.

Also, view our upcoming available orientation dates and times.

A Provider is one who is providing services to an IHSS Recipient in their home.

The San Joaquin County IHSS Public Authority  can help with training in CPR, First Aid & AED , help filling out timesheets, and direct deposit forms.
