Information: The DHS Office of Community Services (OCS) provides services, programs and opportunities that enable low-income and vul-nerable individuals and families in Allegheny County to become more self-sufficient. Three major hunger programs provide for the purchase and distribution of food through a network of more than 300 emergency hunger-serving agencies, including food pantries, soup kitchens, afterschool feeding programs and other locations where food is made available to those in need. The housing programs address the needs of the homeless or near homeless through emergency shelters, transitional housing, perma-nent housing, rental assistance and innovative housing services. Services also are provided to link the homeless to all available community resources and offer assistance to public housing residents.
