OCPS launches a new resource assistance platform for families in need through OCPS Community Connect. The free resource is available to OCPS families, staff and the community to assist in self-navigating social services and community resources at their own convenience. The platform allows a search to be made by zip code and browse social service programs across various categories that are geographically close to where a family lives.


Families seeking resources or needing help in areas such as mental health, tutoring and mentoring, child care, housing, healthcare, financial support, and food assistance are connected with community based organizations in the area. 


Additional student resources such as the OCPS Mental Health Services Helpline are available by calling 407-317-3694 Monday thru Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and United Way’s 211 service 24 hours a day. 


Interview opportunity:

Executive Director of Student Services, Mary Bridges and Director of Social Services, Lisa Coffey are available for interviews upon request this week.
