LA CASA is and all-volunteer organization brought together to support these children. Founded in 1980 as an auxiliary to support the Allen Sitton Home, later replaced by Orangewood Children's Home and now Orangewood Children and Family Center. LA CASA enhances the enviroment of the children undergoing the difficult transition that brought them here.
What is Orangewood Children's Home?
Orangewood Children and Family Center (formerly Orangewood Children's home) is operated by the Orange County Social Services Agency and is a nationally- recognized shelter for neglected and abused children
Orangewood is a safe haven for children who have unwillingly found themselves in unfortunate circumstances and need short-term (emergency) protection. Each year hundreds of children, ranging from newborn to 18 years of age are brought to Orangewood for reasons from alleged abuse, to neglect and abandonment.
Creating a secure and stable environment in a temporary shelter setting can be challenging. The Orangewood staff of counselors, social workers, teachers, librarians, nurses and therapists provide 24-hour protection, supervision and care for all chidren in their care. The staff at Orangewood are also committed to meeting the cultural needs of it's diverse population
