Consumer Advisory Committees and Governing Boards

Consumer Voices at the Forefront of IHSS Public Policy

Consumer Advisory Committees on In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) elevates IHSS consumer voices on how services are provided.

This important perspective allows members to improve the availability and quality of IHSS and support services that enhance the lives of seniors and persons with disabilities who choose to live independently and with dignity in their own homes.

The Advisory Committees and Governing Boards’ primary responsibility is to advise each county’s Board of Supervisors, the Public Authority, Department of Health and Human Services, and other involved agencies about IHSS and to make recommendations to improve services.
