Today, the third generation of Collins women own and manage Aunt Ann’s In-House Staffing with an exceptional group of dedicated staff. As third generation owners, Denise and Sue Collins take great pride answering the question, “Who was Aunt Ann?” with “Our grandmother, Ann Collins.”

Ann CollinsOur History

In 1958, Ann Collins, her son Tom, and daughter-in-law Sophie Collins opened Aunt Ann’s Agency on Franklin Street in San Francisco. The business opened its doors as a babysitting and nursing registry serving the greater San Francisco Bay Area, and within a year it became a full-service nanny, domestic and elder care referral agency with an overseas office.

In the past 50 YEARS… we have earned the trust of tens of thousands of families. We have built long-term relationships with multiple generations of our clients, staffing their homes with Childcare, Household & Estate, Eldercare & Private Office employees.

It is not unusual to hear from a client:  “I was looking for a Housekeeper when I found Aunt Ann’s In-House Staffing.  I was so happy to see that you’re still around.  When I was a child, my parents hired my favorite nanny from Aunt Ann’s.”
