(Placerville, CA) - The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Public Authority Advisory Committee of El Dorado County is seeking new members to fill consumer and provider vacancies. The IHSS Public Authority Advisory Committee is appointed by the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors and serves in an advisory capacity to the Board and the IHSS Public Authority on issues affecting recipients and providers of the IHSS Program. The IHSS Program provides personal and domestic services to low-income, aged, blind or disabled people. The IHSS Public Authority works to improve the lives of IHSS recipients by ensuring access to providers who can help recipients remain living independently.
Individuals who are current or prior recipients of IHSS or private homecare services, or who have provided homecare services to someone after a serious illness, disability or surgery, are welcome to apply. Applicants should have a desire to contribute and participate, be passionate about improving services for older and disabled service recipients, and have a desire to conduct outreach and increase awareness about the IHSS Program and IHSS Public Authority.
Interested individuals are invited to attend the next meeting of the IHSS Public Authority Advisory Committee on Monday, April 20, 2020, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency, located at 3057 Briw Road in Placerville.
