About The Lighthouse:
The Lighthouse is a program for survivors of sex trafficking in Orange County. This residential program helps them return to a healthy and productive life. The Lighthouse is staffed 24/7 by Orangewood employees who have the experience and training to understand this unique population and offer specialized, individualized support. Similar to our current transitional housing programs, The Lighthouse is more than just a place to live. It is a place for survivors to heal and begin to create a new life for themselves.
