Oviedo Citizens In Action


Oviedo Citizen in Action (OCIA) has served the Oviedo community for over 50 years. Its mission is to aid, encourage, and foster community improvements and participation of low-income families in Central Florida.

Founded in 1969, local community leaders understood there was a significant need to bridge the gap between the local Black community and the City of Oviedo. OCIA leadership understood what was lacking in the community and searched out programs designed to help low-income families in a variety of ways. They worked with the city and county governments to create programs that allowed the community members an opportunity to receive health benefits, educational benefits, and better living conditions.

Word spread through local churches and membership grew. The group not only help develop programs to assist community members, but they also gathered information to help connect those in need with programs already in place. Their work included connecting people to local food banks, promoting health and education issues, and housing assistance.

OCIA was and still is a bridge-builder. Today OCIA is a more diverse organization than it was back in the late sixties. OCIA has members of many races and ethnicities, professional backgrounds, and various age groups. Members come to OCIA with ideas and action plans to improve the community and the surrounding areas of Seminole County.
