COVID-19 Protocol

COVID-19 Policies

Updated 8/20/2021

With the number of COVID-19 cases significantly increasing in Allegheny County, POWER staff are masking when in our offices and in the community. We continue to practice social distancing, and meetings between staff are virtual whenever possible. Staff are not currently required to be vaccinated, but it is strongly encouraged. A recent survey revealed that 90% of our staff have been fully vaccinated.

POWER House, our 26-bed residential treatment program in Swissvale, continues to operate and accept new clients. POWER House reviews and adjusts their specific procedures and protocols as needed, keeping the staff and clients apprised. Fully vaccinated clients and staff are no longer required to wear masks in the House.

All Intake screenings are provided by telephone. Intake Specialists manage all referrals, conduct urgent care screenings, refer clients for critical medical and/or mental health services when indicated, and schedule all assessments. They can be reached by calling the POWER Line at 412-243-8755. 

Assessments, Outpatient counseling, and Mentoring services are happening in person and can still be provided via telehealth when requested.

POWER administrative offices at 907 West St are open Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Questions? Call the POWER Line at 412-243-8755.
