Historical Notes: On June 23, 2016 the City of Orlando and Orange County Government officially opened an out-of-use county building as the Orlando United Assistance Center (OUAC), a place where those affected by the Pulse Nightclub shooting could go to seek assistance. OUAC, located at 507 E. Michigan Street, replaced the temporary facility that had been established at Camping World Stadium is the days following the shooting. Case managers who work for OUAC will pair clients with contracted mental-health counselors for free counseling to anyone who is uninsured or under-insured.
