Allegheny County Health Department
Great progress has been made to improve the health of our community; however, there is still much to be done to make Allegheny County the healthiest county in the nation. We continue to face many challenges, including air quality, smoking, obesity, lead exposure, chronic disease and overdoses.
Your public health department strives to support healthy behaviors, improve environmental health and build a culture of health in all 130 municipalities in our county.
Allegheny County Department of Human Services
DHS has been meeting the publicly funded human service needs of Allegheny County residents since 1997. We are dedicated to meeting these needs through an extensive range of information exchange, prevention, early intervention, case management, crisis intervention and after care services. DHS is always innovating. We value our ever-growing partnerships and input from the community as we work to improve our services and operations every day. There are many ways to reach out for assistance and to help shape the future of human services.
