What is In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS)?
In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) is a California government program that provides financial assistance for caretakers of children with developmental disabilities, including autism, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome.
This means that if you are a parent raising a child with special needs who requires constant supervision, you may be eligible to receive up to $3,000 a month in benefits.
Not only does this funding ease the constant worrying about money, these benefits can help pay for therapies and other treatments, or simply daily expenses that become difficult if you have to take time off or you are unable to work completely.
If you're trying to figure out eligibility criteria and are overwhelmed by the complicated application process, we can help.
