The Orange Area Service Committee (OASC) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization committed to helping the individuals, families and children residing within Orange School District with basic needs in emergency situations.

Residents living within the Orange School District may apply to the OASC for emergency assistance with food, rent, utilities, car repairs, medical bills, clothing, academic needs or youth programs. The Orange School District encompasses several eastern suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio:  Pepper Pike, Orange Village, Moreland Hills, Woodmere, Hunting Valley and a few streets in each of Warrensville Heights and Solon.

The OASC was formed in 1962 by a group of caring residents in our community.  Since its inception, this grassroots organization has been run by volunteers and supported entirely through donations from community members.

The OASC makes every effort to protect the identity and dignity of applicants.  Our funds are not intended to provide sustainable assistance.  We generally grant no more than one application per family per year.

The OASC is not part of the Orange City School District, nor must applicants have students enrolled in the Orange Schools.  The “Orange Area” name was adopted because the OASC was formed to assist residents in our neighborhoods, the communities that fall within the boundaries of the Orange School District.

We can only help to the extent of contributions from community members who contribute to provide a safety net for our neighbors when they need assistance in emergency situations.
