A Community

The Orangewood Resource Center (ORC) is a community hub. It's on the front lines, welcoming youth in the community with family-style meals, access to basic needs, entry to safe and secure housing, and connections to services at Orangewood and our community partners.


The Orangewood Resource Center often serves as an entry point for youth seeking to meet their basic needs. The compassionate case managers and Youth Support Specialists at the ORC always ask one simple but important question to the more than 300 youth who walk through our doors each month:

"What do you need today?"

A Point of Housing

Over the past year, the ORC has been increasingly confronted with the growing homelessness crisis facing our youth. In response, the ORC has expanded its services to become an access point for housing, from referrals to emergency shelters to placement in permanent housing. The ORC is expanding its resources to meet basic needs to include not only meals and groceries but also housing navigation services.


161 youth enrolled in the Coordinated Entry System (CES) to connect with housing in the community.
