Our History

Since 2003, Connecting Point (originally the Nevada-Sierra Regional IHSS Public Authority) has been connecting people to In-Home-Support-Services and IHSS employment in Nevada, Sierra, and Plumas Counties.

In 2011, we adopted operations of Nevada County’s 211 program and now manage a comprehensive centralized database of regional health and human services programs for both Nevada and Placer counties. In tandem with our 211 Call Center, we are able to provide 24/7 access to regional resources, information, assistance, disaster information and program enrollment.

In 2014, Connecting Point expanded to provide employment services, training, financial assistance, and job placement for parents participating in Nevada County’s CalWORKs program.
