Children's Home Society of Florida

On the front lines for kids since 1902, Children’s Home Society of Florida protects kids from suffering abuse or neglect, helps to heal the pain of children and teens who've been traumatized and victimized, and empowers families to lead stable, fulfilling, healthy lives. Children’s Home Society of Florida also guides teenagers in foster care toward paths of responsible, positive decision-making so they may break harmful generational cycles of abuse and family destruction, enabling them to pursue productive, self-sufficient, meaningful lives. Recognizing the diversity of communities and families, Children’s Home Society of Florida provides programs and services — such as Evans Community Partnership School — that meet the unique needs of communities throughout the state. Children’s Home Society of Florida is driven to ensure more children grow up safe, healthy and prepared for life. Website | Facebook | Twitter
Orange Blossom Family Health

Orange Blossom Family Health

Orange Blossom Family Health offers access to quality health care services in an atmosphere of dignity and respect for low-income housed or homeless residents of Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties. Its first health center opened in 2006 just west of downtown Orlando, offering medical, dental and behavioral health programs. In addition to the many services offered at its main site, Orange Blossom Family Health now operates out of multiple satellite locations throughout the tri-county area providing little to no cost preventive medical care. The organization offers affordable patient centered services for all community members regardless of their financial status. Website

University of Central Florida

The University of Central Florida is a major metropolitan university and among the largest in the nation in student enrollment. UCF strives to be a leading partnership university and its colleges embody this mission. The former College of Health and Public Affairs led UCF’s efforts to establish Community Partnership Schools in Florida, beginning with Evans High School. Today, the UCF Center for Community Schools in the new College of Community Innovation and Education is facilitating the development and strategic planning of these schools, as well as contributing technical expertise in building community partnerships. The center also is coordinating the placement of UCF interns at Evans and the contributions of other UCF colleges. UCF’s role in founding Evans High School, A Community Partnership School has been unlike any other relationship between a university and a community school. In other university-community school partnerships, the university participates after the school is established. UCF has played a unique role by helping to found the Community Partnership School™ model itself. Website | Facebook | Twitter
