Community Guides for Parents, Educators

ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Muskingum Valley Educational Service Center (MVESC) is making available free Community Resource Guides for parents and educators. The guides list social service providers and government agencies with their contact information in all seven counties covered by MVESC. Guides are available online at www.mvesc.org for Coshocton, Hocking, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, Perry and Tuscarawas Counties. To find the guides, click the “For Parents” or “For Educators” links on the website’s homepage. 

Tonya Steele, MVESC’s Family and Community Partnership Liaison, worked cooperatively with social service agencies and governmental entities to develop the guides. “I would like to thank MVESC community partners, especially each county’s Family and Children First Council, for assisting me in gathering accurate information about the available resources in our region,” Steele said.    

Lori Snyder-Lowe, MVESC Superintendent, said the guides are designed to be easy to use and are a valuable resource for parents and educators. “Gathering and compiling information for multiple counties was no small task, and Tonya did an excellent job working with partners and getting the project completed,” Snyder-Lowe said. “We believe the guides will help parents, educators and agencies quickly determine what programs are available when students, individuals or families are in need,” she added. 

As programs, services or contact information changes, the guides will be updated on the mvesc.org website. Contact Tonya Steele with questions, corrections, or additions at tonya.steele@mvesc.org or 740-452-4518, ext. 1117.
