About Us

In-Home Support Network is the agency name that houses the IHSS Public Authority program. A Public Authority is a local agency established by an ordinance enacted by a County Board of Supervisors that is legally separate from the county. In July 1999, California State Assembly Bill AB1682 became a law, requiring an Employer-of-Record to be established for the IHSS Program by January 2003 in every county. IHSS Public Authority is the employer of record for IHSS care providers for the purpose of collective bargaining.
