About Us

Since 1924, Great Oaks Village has been a safe-haven to thousands of children who have been removed from their homes by the Department of Children and Family due to various forms of abuse, abandonment or neglect. Children who range in age from 6 to 21 years, are placed in one of our six cottages in this quaint, tree-lined campus on Michigan Street, near the heart of downtown Orlando. All school aged children attend public schools and participate in activities both on and off campus. Accredited by the Council on Accreditation, recognizing quality service and positive delivery outcomes, this social landmark is widely recognized as a leader in foster care.

Great Oaks Village relies on the support of community and individual partners like you!!

Your contribution to the Great Oaks Village Christmas Campaign will provide our children with a Christmas to remember and special opportunities throughout the year. An appointed board serves as steward for all donations. All donated funds are used for the benefit of the children.
