How do I choose an IHSS provider?
If you are ineligible to be a parent provider, you must hire someone to perform the authorized services. If you need assistance locating a provider, call the Personal Assistance Services Council (PASC), the Public Authority for Los Angeles County IHSS providers. PASC operates a Provider Registry and will provide you with referrals to providers. Contact PASC at (877) 565-4477 or visit their website.
You may also have a family member or family friend become authorized to provide IHSS services. As with parent providers, third-party providers must be eligible to work in the United States, and will be required to complete background checks, fingerprinting and orientation.
