General Information

The IHSS program provides payment for non-medical in-home care for qualified individuals who are unable to remain safely in their homes without this assistance.

To be eligible for IHSS, an individual must be Medi-Cal eligible or must be receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The IHSS program is designed to assist adults or children with disabilities or seniors 65 years of age or older. Once enrolled, IHSS may pay the wages of a home care worker that you select. IHSS applications are taken by mail, email, fax, through our website or by phone.

To apply for IHSS, please call (415) 355-6700, 8:00AM - 5:00PM Mon - Fri.
