The Registry’s primary goal
is to assist IHSS Consumer to hire Individual Providers (IPs) in a
timely manner. The Registry is a customized database that matches the
needs of the IHSS Consumer with Registry Providers. The registry staff
will determine if a “match” was made or if the Consumer requires further
assistance with hiring a Provider. The Imperial County Public Authority
Registry allows us to refer pre-screened providers that match the needs
of IHSS clients looking to hire. The Registry does not directly hire or
guarantee hire. Participation in the Imperial County IHSS Public
Authority Registry is voluntary and is not a requirement to receive
In-Home Supportive Services benefits. The Registry is a no-cost
referral service limited to IHSS clients. You may reach us at
(760)482-2969 or (760)482-2979.
