AAA Ready for Relocation
The Allegheny County Department of Human Services Area Agency on Aging is moving to a new location in the South Side. Having lost its current lease downtown at 441Smithfield Street, the AAA will be moving to the second floor of Birmingham Towers, at 2100 Wharton Street.
The move is scheduled for the end of May, with AAA staff expecting to report to the new office for the first time on June 3. AAA’s regional offices in McKeesport and Carnegie will be consolidated into the Birmingham Towers office in June.
Housed in the new office will be administrative, caseworker, program and support staff for all of the AAA programs. There will also be drop-in spaces for numerous field staff working in the community who are in the office less frequently. Additional drop-in spaces are being identified across the County to provide field staff with alternative locations where they can drop off mail for the courier and plug into the DHS network closer to the areas where they’re working.
“Planning for this relocation and consolidation provided the opportunity for us to look toward the next 10 years and to design a space that will better accommodate the Area Agency on Aging’s changing needs and work processes,” said Erin Cosgrove, Special Projects Manager. “We have an increasing number of staff members working in the community and an increased ongoing collaboration between departments and staff in the office.”
The new site is about two blocks from the Birmingham Bridge and three blocks from Carson Street, on 21st Street.
AAA’s phone numbers and staff email addresses will remain the same. Additional contact information for AAA can be found on the AAA page of the DHS website.
