About Orangewood Children’s Foundation:

The mission of the Orangewood Children’s Foundation is to provide services for abused and neglected children and at-risk families to end the cycle of child abuse one life at a time. Approximately 10% of children in Orange County are temporarily placed at the Orangewood Children & Family Center, formally The Orangewood Children’s Home, due to unsafe conditions in their homes. Many of these children spend their lives in foster care and at the age of 18, they find themselves on their own—emancipated from the dependency system. Orangewood steps in, and works on long-term solutions to this issue. Orange Children’s Foundation has programs in place that offer emergency assistance, job placement, transition housing, peer counseling and scholarships for college or vocational training. These programs give teens the opportunity to succeed, despite the challenges of their past.
