PA Governing Body’s Latest Addition
Posted on July 31, 2017
William (Bill) Pitts is the latest addition to the SF IHSS Public Authority Governing Body. Bill is a San Francisco resident who lives near the Church and Market area, and he brings a wealth of experience to the board. He has worked at Progress Foundation for over nine years and is now their Director of Relief Counselors. He oversees the day-to-day management of about 100 relief counselors, ensuring the Foundation’s residential treatment programs have the support they need to operate 24 hours a day.
As a former consumer and provider, Bill is no stranger to IHSS. His 85-year-old mother and two sisters, who are both dealing with advanced chronic illnesses, are IHSS consumers. He reports that one sister was able to leave a nursing home in 2010 and live independently with the support of “the many providers who have helped me and my family through the years.” He emphasizes that “as a former provider, I recognize the vital service the Public Authority provides to those in need. The three workers we have now are amazing.” Welcome to the board, Bill!
