Orangewood Children’s Foundation
The mission of Orangewood Children’s Foundation is to end the cycle of child abuse by providing innovative programs focused on:
- Prevention – Strengthening at-risk families to prevent abuse before it starts;
- Care – Supporting children in foster care and at the Orangewood Children’s Home;
- Emancipation – Successfully transitioning foster teens into independent adulthood;
- Public Awareness – Inspiring involvement from the community.
In 1981, a concerned group of private citizens and community leaders established the Orangewood Children’s Foundation as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit and raised more than $8 million towards the construction of the Orangewood Children’s Home (now called the Orangewood Children & Family Center). The volunteer-driven effort continued when the Foundation produced an additional $3.2 million for the subsequent expansion of the Home in 1992.Visit the "Orangewood Children’s Foundation" website
