PASC Providers

PASC Homecare Registry

Who can join the Registry as a Provider?

PASC Registry provider applicants must be “eligible” to do In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) work pursuant to current state laws. In other words, Registry provider applicants must have already:

  • attended the county orientation meeting for IHSS providers
  • cleared a criminal background investigation conducted by the California Department of Justice. Provider applicants who have never worked for the IHSS Program or who have stopped working for one or more years should call the IHSS Helpline to comply with the above requirements before contacting PASC.

How can an individual join the Registry as a provider?

There are three ways in which an “eligible” IHSS provider can join the PASC Homecare Registry. Regardless of the option chosen, Registry applicants must submit a copy of their valid Driver License/California ID, a copy of their social security card, and, when applicable, a copy of any document showing a legal right to work in the USA. We also encourage applicants to submit copies of any certificates or documents they may possess related to their experience and/or training in-home care or nursing duties.

Attend a Registry Information & Recruitment Meeting:

PASC Homecare Registry conducts information/provider recruitment meetings in different cities throughout the year.  At these 2-hour long meetings, provider applicants learn about the Registry’s expectations, required code of conduct on the job, and generalities about the IHSS program. At the end of the meeting, applicants will be given the registry application form, which solicits information on the applicants’ experience and willingness to do the different IHSS tasks. Eligible providers interested in this option should call 877-565-4477, then press 2 followed by 1 for further information, or send an email to

Apply in Person at PASC Office:

Eligible providers can apply to the Registry in person by visiting PASC Headquarters in Pasadena Monday to Friday, between 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. To avoid any misunderstanding, we advise those applicants who choose this option to verify their eligibility to do IHSS work before arrival. Applicants will be served on a first-come, first-served basis, and should plan on spending up to an hour at our office. Due to space limitations, in case other adults accompany the applicant, we recommend that these adults remain in their cars.

IMPORTANT: Providers with Tier 2 convictions are not eligible to join the Registry. Also, if Registry staff concludes, based upon information from any reliable sources, including DPSS, APS, or law enforcement, that a Provider/applicant’s past services or character are such that no well-advised Consumer would be likely to consider the applicant for hire, the Registry may exclude or deny Registry participation to the Provider applicant.
