The Registry’s primary goal is to assist IHSS Consumer to hire Individual Providers (IPs) in a timely manner.  The Registry is a customized database that matches the needs of the IHSS Consumer with Registry Providers.  The registry staff will determine if a “match” was made or if the Consumer requires further assistance with hiring a Provider. The Imperial County Public Authority Registry allows us to refer pre-screened providers that match the needs of IHSS clients looking to hire.  The Registry does not directly hire or guarantee hire. Participation in the Imperial County IHSS Public Authority Registry is voluntary and is not a requirement to receive In-Home Supportive Services benefits.  The Registry is a no-cost referral service limited to IHSS clients.  You may reach us at (760)337-7822 or (760) 337-6851.
