The Public Authority Registry is a resource of qualified Care Providers maintained by the Public Authority. Registered IHSS Care Providers are matched with eligible and enrolled IHSS Care Recipients. We aim to facilitate good and lasting employment relationships by connecting those IHSS Recipients who are in need of care with registered independent Care Providers seeking meaningful work.
For Care Providers: Application for our Registry
Once successfully enrolled as an IHSS Care Provider, you can join our Registry to be matched with an IHSS Recipient. Additional steps are necessary to be on the IHSS Public Authority Registry:
- A Provider Registry Application must be completed and submitted with professional references. A copy of the application may be picked up at the Public Authority office, downloaded here, or contact us and we will mail one to you.
- A personal interview will be scheduled.
The Public Authority of Marin requires that Care Providers be proficient in English with good communication skills. They must be able to work independently without supervision and have prior caregiving experience. Two professional references are required.
For Care Recipients: Referral List
It is the responsibility of the IHSS Care Recipient to locate and hire an IHSS Care Provider. This process can be challenging, and those in need of assistance may call the Public Authority for a list of Care Provider referrals.
The IHSS Provider Registry is a comprehensive database of available Care Providers who have completed a background check and have submitted to additional screening and training to help assure quality care to the Recipient. The skills of the Care Provider are matched with the needs of the Care Recipient to create a referral list of potential caregivers that are available for hire.
