In Home Supportive Services 

Our Location: The Sequoia Building, 3821 North Clark Street, Fresno, CA  93726

The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program arranges for and helps pay for services to enable elderly, blind or disabled persons to live safely and independently in their own homes. The Fresno County IHSS program is considered an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing homes or board and care facilities. The types of services that can be authorized through IHSS are chores and related services (such as housecleaning, meal preparation, laundry and grocery shopping), and personal care services (such as bowel and bladder care, bathing and paramedical services). Recipients of IHSS must receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or meet other income eligibility requirements.
