Orangewood Advocates

According to a 2007 study, 46% of California teens leaving the foster care system
have NOT completed
high school (versus 16% of the general population).

Orangewood Advocates are people in the community who believe this statistic is unacceptable and want to improve the situation for Orange County's foster teens. Please read more in the letter from Orangewood CEO, Cal Winslow, and in the op-ed article which will be submitted to local papers in early July.
