    About Us

    In-Home Supportive Services Public Authority of Marin (IHSS PA) is a public agency established in 2002 by the Board of Supervisors. We serve low-income older adults and persons with disabilities who qualify for in home support services in order to remain independent and safe in their own homes.

    We work in partnership with the In-Home Supportive Services Program (IHSS), administered by Marin County Health and Human Services. We match IHSS Care Recipients with qualified Care Providers so they can live healthier, more productive lives.

    Our Mission:
    We aim to empower IHSS Recipients of Marin County to remain independent and safe by supplying quality, in-home Care Providers for whom we select and support.

    Our Vision:
    We envision a world where all IHSS Recipients of Marin County remain independent and safe at home.

    Our Services:
    - Maintain a Registry of care providers who are prescreened and available for work.
    - Provide lists of available, screened care providers to IHSS care recipients.
    - Match care recipients with care providers and conduct follow-ups.
