Located in our office, the One Stop Center is a resource center dedicated to assisting Consumers in all matters related to their IHSS care. Within the One Stop Center, Consumers can access IHSS trainings such as, “What is IHSS?” and “How to Hire a Home Care Provider”. They can also obtain IHSS informational literature, receive assistance finding external resources, and receive mentorship.
The One Stop Center will begin hosting IHSS trainings in March 2018.
