What We Do
Health & Wellness
On a daily basis, Orangewood staff members help our youth with their physical, emotional, and “relational” health. Often, struggles in these areas become hurdles for our youth to achieve their other goals on the path to self-sufficiency, such as securing and maintaining housing or employment, learning and retaining life skills, and pursuing an education. During the last year, we:
- Provided assistance to 506 youth in the Orangewood Resource Center in a total of 4,332 visits.
- Had 73 adult mentors build positive and supportive relationships in 2,193 volunteer hours with their mentees.
- Assisted 32 youth through the Orange County Collaborative Court programs with individualized mental health and life skills support.
