Office Of Community Partnerships
The mission of the Office of Community Partnerships (OCP) is to strengthen relationships between the Montgomery County government and the residents it serves, with special focus on underserved and emerging communities and our neighbors in need. The OCP serves as a bridge builder between the County government and community organizations serving the residents of Montgomery County, working across the barriers of race, ethnicity, income, and religion that too often diminish communities. OCP’s mission is to carry out the County Executive’s commitment to build a larger policy table with participation by a more diverse range and greater number of residents as we work to become America’s most welcoming community.
