Placer County to Host Ribbon Cutting for New Health and Human Services Center in Auburn

Feb 07, 2024 09:35AM ● By Placer County News Release

AUBURN, CA - Placer County will soon open its new Health and Human Services Center, a "one-stop" service center for Auburn and the foothills area, at the Government Center campus in North Auburn.

The 143,000-square-foot facility consolidates existing staff and services from six divisions and is the county's first zero-net-energy facility, generating as much electricity as it consumes over the course of a year through the use of photovoltaic panels. 

Health and Human Services Center services, from mental health and substance use treatment to child abuse prevention, health education, public benefits and more, will begin operation in the new building over the course of the next month. 

The new center was collaboratively designed to streamline access to services with features that are both welcoming and cutting-edge: a central lobby, large training and meeting spaces for county and community use, flexible office space for about 450 staff who will occupy the building, a two-story open space area dubbed "Collaboration Street" that promotes integration between program teams, a play area for children, outdoor patios for visitors and county employees and a river-themed landscape entry.
