I know there are many reasons my life is going so well. But I firmly believe that Orangewood Foundation is one of the key factors in my stability and success.
Orangewood to me is like a family. They are the real home I never had. My life before Orangewood was dark, and full of sadness. Now I have lightness, happiness, a supportive foundation, and most of all, hope.”
While at one point in my life I saw foster care as a nightmare, I now see that it was a turning point which positively altered my future. Without the generous support from Orangewood and the people involved in it, my life would have taken a different path."
“Samueli Academy shined a light on a future I never knew I could have. Thanks to Orangewood, I’m creating my own future now. I couldn’t be more proud to call Samueli Academy my school.”
Orangewood provided stability and security in my life. I am so grateful to have people to turn to when I need help, and to know that if I ask for help there is someone that will make every effort to make sure that I get it."
I came to Orangewood because I heard I could get a toothbrush and some food, but I kept coming back because it was the only place I knew I could get emotional support.”
Orangewood gave me stability, helped me get my life together, and helped me take baby steps towards trusting people again. The staff is made up of genuine, caring people, and the support I have received has meant the world to me.”
