Public Services

There is a certain hostility towards Central Florida families who sometimes find themselves in need of a little help. Other roadblocks include predatory, church and non-profit groups who prey on the vulnerable with bullshit and religion.

The West Orlando News Public Services Page was created to help local residents avoid this run around. No in its 5th year, over 235,000 people have used this page to access the services that people turn to, unfiltered, when they only need a little, temporary help.

The links below are actual, direct links to various agencies that are tasked with helping Florida families and individuals when they need it.  We’d appreciate your feedback.
