Roughly 35,000 cases of child abuse are reported annually in Orange County. Of these reports, nearly 10% are cause for the child to be removed from their home and become a ward of the state. Many of these children will spend the rest of their lives in the system (foster care or group homes).

On their 18th birthday, these children become emancipated from the system, and oftentimes find themselves alone and struggling to take care of themselves. Without the traditional family support system, many of these children find themselves unprepared to face the challenges of adulthood, as well as lack the necessary experiences to be able to provide for themselves. They become at risk for becoming homeless, incarcerated, or victimized.

Orangewood Children's Foundation offers emergency assistance, job placement, housing, counseling, and even provides scholarships to these children, giving them the chance to lead successful lives.

The main function of the Foundation is to help children successfully transition through the emancipation process, support the children who are currently in foster care/group homes, sustain the Orangewood Children's Home, and strengthening at-risk families by providing health access, counseling, and community support in hopes of preventing child abuse and neglect from even starting.

These kids have had a rough enough life. With your support, they can finally start leading productive, meaningful lives. Please donate your time and/or money for this wonderful program.
