The Children's Cabinet
The Children’s Cabinet is a community advisory group consisting of consumer and professional stakeholders who are involved with child serving systems across Allegheny County.
Family members and youth advocates who have been recipients of DHS services participate as valued members of the Cabinet. The Children’s Cabinet has facilitated candid discussions and elicited a broad spectrum of input from the community regarding the Improving Outcomes for Children and Families Initiative. It is also now serving in an advisory capacity for the Title IV-E Waiver Child Welfare Demonstration Project. The group is led by DHS Director Cherna and meets on a quarterly basis.
