It Takes a Village
“The greatness of community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” ~ Coretta Scott King
I like being able to search providers for my dad, message them and ask questions without giving any personal information away.
Kristal R., Family Member
As a provider, I'm excited to not have to rely on Facebook to find work. Now I can apply for specific jobs in my area and recipients can easily find and message me.
Shoshana G., Provider
The paper lists sent from my local registry are frustrating, to say the least. I'm finally in control of my search for a WPCS provider for my son.
Angela W., Caregiver
I'm excited for this new support for IHSS! I've hoped for years that there could be a better system and database for finding new providers.
Nancy B., Provider
I think the hardest part of finding a provider, is finding one close. I'm excited to be able to pinpoint my search to areas close to my home.
Gloria V., Recipient
I live on my own and depend on IHSS providers for most of my daily basic care needs. When one of my providers cancels last minute there isn't a way to fill that void quickly. I'm most excited about having more options.
Henry S., Recipient
