The Public Authority is a public agency created by state law to work in conjunction with Kings County In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Program. The purpose of the Public Authority is to help IHSS Consumers find providers so that they can remain safely in their homes.
IHSS Public Authority Providers offer personal assistance and domestic services to the elderly, blind, and people with disabilities contributing to the respect, dignity and independence that allow Consumers to remain safely in their homes.
Duties may include personal assistance with dressing and bathing, as well as household tasks. Potential Providers must attend an orientation, have a valid photo ID, Social Security Card and undergo a criminal background check including fingerprints.
Employment hours are flexible and are determined by the individual Consumer who has been authorized to receive In-Home Supportive Services. Wages have recently increased to $10.25 per hour. Contact the Public Authority to become a care provider.
