Community schools utilize the assets of the entire community—including the gifts of people who live and work there, parents, families, residents and community partners to create the optimal learning conditions for each student.

We believe that schools are most effective working in collaboration.  Ottawa County is a wonderfully collaborative community with extensive resources. The resources on this page are intended to help schools find and access those resources.

This guide was developed to provide a directory of resources and agencies for schools to use.  It was updated in July 2020 and includes information about each agency/organization, services, service area,eligibility guidelines,how to access, and details for the following areas:

  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Utilities
  • Childcare
  • Mental Health
  • Cash/Emergency Assistance
