Strengthen In-Home Supportive Services

Tell Us How IHSS Affects Your Life!

  With recent news about known and unknown changes to the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program, it is important to recognize the need for the consumer's voice in the IHSS program.

  The California In-Home Supportive Services Consumer Alliance (CICA) believes the Consumer (recipients and their providers) can share best what is needed to assist them in their daily lives to remain healthy and in their homes!

  One avenue of sharing the Consumer's voice is through a "Storybook" of experiences sharing the individual's personal need and value of the IHSS program.  This "Storybook" will share personal experiences of recipients and providers to be shared with Legislators throughout the state advocating to strengthen the IHSS program (this will also be used as a tool when visiting Sacramento).

  It is hoped to gather experiences from all the State Assembly Districts (80) in order to connect to the individual State Representatives the importance of the program to those they represent.  The more experiences shared the stronger the advocacy for strengthening the IHSS program will be.

  If you wish to share your voice to strengthen the IHSS program please complete the below form and send it in by March 31, 2017.

Help Strengthen IHSS Storybook Form (Print and complete) Instructions:  Print and complete.  Submit to:  CICA, 735 P Street, #C4, Eureka, CA  95501
