The Contra Costa County Public Authority is a public agency whose purpose is to provide consumer input to the IHSS program. The Public Authority operates a Registry that recruits, checks references for home care workers, enters names and information into a computer, and then supplies a list of names to consumers.
The Registry computer will search for potential workers to match your needs, hours and location. The Registry staff will send you a list of three to six names of potential workers. You call the names on the list to discuss the job and set up interviews.
You may call the Registry at (800) 333-1081 to let them know what services you need and what hours you need a worker.
