Mission Statement

To prepare foster and community youth to reach their greatest potential.

Description

Orangewood Children's Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization founded in 1981. Today, Orangewood is focused on meeting the on-going needs of children in foster care, specifically preparing them for independent living as an adult. Our programs help bridge the gap from dependency to independent living. We provide college scholarships to as well as financial support to those currently in care to join a little league or take music lessons - anything to help 'normalize' their life. Orangewood holds weekly workshops teaching daily life skills, provides mentors to youth desiring that type of relationship, and offers a transitional housing program. Our Resource Center is open daily to help former foster youth find employment, shelter, food or even clothing. Beyond our programs, for thousands of foster children Orangewood means "family," "opportunity" and "hope." Learn how you can help at www.orangewoodfoundation.org.

I've always found the Orangewood staff to be very professional and helpful. They have events throughout the year and they keep you informed. If you need help they are there for you but they aren't intrusive.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
