Overview of City of Philadelphia
With a workforce of over 30,000 people, and opportunities in more than 1,000 different job categories, the City of Philadelphia is the fifth largest city in the United States and one of the largest employers in Southeastern Pennsylvania. As an employer, the City of Philadelphia operates through the guiding principles of service, integrity, respect, accountability, collaboration, diversity, and inclusion. Through these principles, we strive to effectively deliver services, to resolve the challenges facing our city, and to make Philadelphia a place where all residents can reach their potential.
The Health and Human Services Cabinet (HHS) is comprised of the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbilities (DBHIDS), Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity (CEO), Office of Homeless Services, and Department of Public Health (PDPH). In addition, HHS manages the Mayor’s Commission on Services to the Aging (MCOA), and an Audit Unit. The mission of the Cabinet is to ensure the health and wellbeing, safety, and appropriate supports for all Philadelphians, particularly the most vulnerable children and adults.
The Mayor’s Commission on Services to the Aging (MCOA) works to improve the quality of life for older adults and manages efforts to create a comprehensive approach for the City to address the needs of Philadelphians as they age. Policy and program approaches have caused the City to be designated as an “age-friendly livable community for all” by the American Association of Retired People.
