About Allegheny County Department of Human Services (DHS)

In Allegheny County, we appreciate people who think big, act boldly, and care about making a difference.  You do not have to be from here to feel at home, or to make your mark.  With only 1.3 million people in the County, it is small enough for motivated people to get things done.  Allegheny County’s Department of Human Services (DHS) is a perfect place to get things done that directly affect people in need of a positive and lasting way.  We help children grow up safer and healthier, older adults remain able to live independently, and neighborhoods to thrive.  Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of people in Allegheny County.

DHS is the largest agency in Allegheny County government, with a budget of over $1 billion. DHS serves more than 200,000 people a year through services that include: Protecting children and youth from abuse and neglect and preventing future occurrences of maltreatment; improving child wellness though family support, home visiting, early intervention and in-home services; providing treatment for behavioral health issues such as substance use disorders and mental illness; managing the care of adults with intellectual disabilities; preventing unnecessary nursing home stays; and services that prevent homelessness and provide shelter and housing for families and individuals.

Why DHS?

  • It is innovative.  Most recently, the national attention and awards we have gotten are for how DHS integrates data and uses them to improve the safety and well-being of children through tools that support front-line staff in making decisions (using predictive analytics).
  • DHS is diverse, but we strive to be even more inclusive.  Our director has made it his top priority that DHS is “the kind of place where a diverse group of talented people want to come, grow, and do their best work.”  This includes equity in hiring and advancement, as well as in unleashing the creativity and ideas of staff at every level of DHS.
  • It has strong, assertive leaders.  We do not hire yes-people.

You can make a big impact here.  We stand out as one of the best human services organizations in the country.  But we need problem-solvers, innovators, and terrific leaders to make sure we are smart in how we use our funding so that we reach the people who most need our help to make lives better.

 

“DHS strives to be the kind of place where a diverse mix of talented people want to come to grow and do their best work.”

Board Directors and Committee Members

As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. Ten Thousand Villages establishes long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization, Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.

Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh is an independent nonprofit that sells Ten Thousand Villages products and shares the company name, but the Pittsburgh board operates separately of Ten Thousand Villages US leadership. In addition to governance, the board is also heavily involved in many aspects of operations, including managing bank accounts, approving expenses, creating the annual budget, devising policies, implementing advertising and marketing plans, organizing events, pursuing grant opportunities, and more.

The board currently has openings for board directors and committee members with experience and expertise in the following:

  • Human Resources
  • Finance/Accounting
  • Marketing
  • Retail Operations
  • IT
  • Legal

The full Board of Directors typically meets on the third Wednesday of every month (except July and December) at 6:30PM. During normal operations, the meeting takes place at the store located at 5820 Forbes Ave in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood and regular in-person attendance is expected of directors. In an average month, board service will require 4-10 hours of directors.  Terms are three years and directors are not required to make financial contributions though they are expected to support fundraising initiatives.

Board committees meet as needed, typically once per month and often by telephone or video conference. There is not a term duration for committee members.
