We believe a healthy community begins with a strong understanding of the current climate in Seminole County and across Central Florida.
We have developed our community data resource tool kit to provide a wealth of information and data related to the current issues facing our residents. Together these resources tell a story of our area – issues concerning children, families and neighborhoods, and overall community health.
If you have a specific question or issue that isn’t addressed here or if you would like to recommend a resource be added to this site please contact us and we’ll be happy to speak with you directly!
The Seminole County Resource Directory is a comprehensive listing of local, state and national resources available to Seminole County families.

Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey (FYSAS) provides scientifically sound information to communities on the prevalence of alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) use, and risk and protective factors among 6th through 12th grade students. This information is essential to support effective substance abuse needs assessment and services planning, and to measure performance outcomes at local and state levels.

To help address substance use among our nation’s youth, Congress created the Drug Free Communities Act of 1997 and appropriated funds for the Drug Free Communities (DFC) Support Program. In this report, evaluation findings are presented on the four core outcome measures–average age of onset, past 30-day use, perception of risk/harm of use, and perception of parental disapproval of use–related to alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana use.
