The Public Authority was established per State mandate to act as Employer of Record for IHSS Providers and operate a Registry of Providers. The County of San Diego Board of Supervisors acts as the Governing Body for the Public Authority. The Public Authority is a separate legal entity from the County, but works as a partner with IHSS, serving IHSS Providers and Consumers.
About the Executive Director
In March 2016, Vickie Molzen began as the IHSS Public Authority’s Executive Director after more than 25 years of service with the County of San Diego. In 2001, she assisted with the creation of the Public Authority while working at Aging & Independence Services. Since then, as an IHSS Program Manager, she has worked with key Public Authority staff to ensure excellence in service to both consumers and providers. Her goals for the Public Authority include increasing the diversity of the Registry providers to ensure the consumers are served in a linguistically and culturally competent way, and to increase the providers’ access to training that will improve their skills and knowledge.
