Ouachita Christian School has been receiving requests and information revolving around the recent flood. We've decided to compile everything that comes through our office into a central location so everyone may get the information and resources they need and others may find volunteer opportunities. As a community, we thank everyone involved. Many of our faculty and staff have been affected by the flood, as well as, our students and families. We graciously thank you for your involvement and are praying for everyone, whether they're helping or receiving help.
