San Francisco IHSS Public Authority
October 8, 2013
San Francisco IHSS Public Authority (IHSSPA) seeks an experienced Executive Director to lead one of California’s most important IHSS Public Authorities.
The ED will be responsible for strengthening the organization and driving the evolution of programs and services; ensuring that IHSSPA is fiscally sound, that its programs continue to be of the highest quality and also evolve to address the changing needs of communities served.
Founded in 1995, the San Francisco IHSS Public Authority (IHSSPA) provides and promotes a service delivery model of consumer-directed in-home support that maximizes the potential of older adults and people with disabilities to live independently and participate in their communities as they choose. IHSSPA creates and operates a Registry to provide lists of screened workers to IHSS consumers for potential in-home employment; arranges training and support services for both IHSS consumers and workers; serves as employer of record for IHSS independent providers (IP’s), allowing worker organization and union representation; provides formal opportunities for consumer leadership in program and policy development through majority representation on the IHSSPA Governing Body/Board; participates in the overall improvement of personal assistance services (assistance to persons of all income levels in carrying out activities they could perform were it not for their disabilities).
We seek an experienced leader with expertise in human and civil rights for people with disabilities of any age from diverse communities, coupled with an understanding of personal assistance services and independent living principles, especially LTSS for seniors; a proven track record of execution and managing service delivery.
