Our members serve as volunteers and leaders with various local partners to better impact our neighbors in the community.
Key Local Partners
CHOICES WOMEN’S CLINIC
Choices Women’s Clinic was founded in 1983 by two Orangewood members and is a non-profit, medical pregnancy clinic equipping women and families to make informed pregnancy decisions. Choices is committed to providing free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and complete and accurate information regarding abortion, adoption, and parenting. Their goal is for each patient to make her own decision after she has received all the resources and information applicable to her situation.Learn More
GRACE MEDICAL HOME
As we read of the growing healthcare crisis, Grace Medical Home wants to close the gap between those who enjoy quality medical care and those who do not. The visionary leaders of Grace Medical Home sought to fill a void in our local healthcare system and developed a solution to remove the burden from the current healthcare community, including hospitals, ER’s, and urgent care clinics. A medical home is an approach to providing continuous, comprehensive primary care.Learn More
The Jobs Partnership of Florida, founded in 1999, uses a proven model of collaboration between churches, businesses, and community organizations to transform the lives of people who are chronically underemployed. They meet each person’s needs head-on: empowering, encouraging, and elevating the workplace attitudes and abilities of each participant. You can serve as a coach every week during the 12-week LifeWorks training or in other one-time volunteer roles.Learn More
RED BAG CAMPAIGN
Public schools in Seminole County identify children at risk due to family economics and designate their families as “Families in Transition.” These children receive breakfast and lunch at school during the week, but often have little food at home. The Red Bag Campaign addresses childhood hunger by providing food for children to take home over the weekend. Orangewood has adopted Hamilton Elementary in Sanford, Florida, and provides food for 35-40 families every week.
How you can help: You can pick up a red grocery bag at Orangewood on the first Sunday of every month, fill with groceries from the attached list, and bring it back to church the second week of the month.
ORLANDO CHILDREN’S CHURCH
Orlando Children’s Church (OCC) is dedicated to reaching at-risk students in the poorest areas of Central Florida through physical nourishment, spiritual renewal, and the cultivation of authentic relationships.
FAITH AND FINANCES
Faith and Finances is a 12-week course, offered twice a year, that helps the working poor in our community deal with personal financial money management in a biblical and practical way.
How you can help: Faith and Finances needs volunteers to serve as allies who show up to all the classes, get to know class participants, and encourage them as they take the class together. Volunteers are also needed to provide or buy dinner for each weekly class.
THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF EATONVILLE
The Boys and Girls Club inspires and enables all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
Elevate builds long-term, life-changing relationships with urban youth, equipping them to thrive and contribute to their community.
