Children's Court | Office of Human Services

The Allegheny County Department of Human Services has partnered with the Allegheny County Children’s Court to establish the Children’s Court Office of Human Services. The Allegheny County Department of Human Services provides resources and staff support for this new Office, located on-site at the Allegheny County Children’s Court at 440 Ross Street, Suite 1003, Pittsburgh, PA 15219. This unique partnership offers a professionally staffed office to identify appropriate resources and referrals to serve families and children involved in Children’s Court proceedings.

The Human Services Resource Coordinator accepts referrals from judges, hearing officers and professional staff regarding child custody cases, family violence matters involving children in Children’s Court matters, and pre/-post dependency matters where there has been no formal AC Department of Human Services involvement. The Office of Human Services will also accept walk-in referrals at designated times for Children’s Court clients seeking assistance and services from the Allegheny County Department of Human Services.

The Allegheny County Department of Human Services and the Children’s Court are committed to meeting the needs of children and families involved in the court system.
