Orange Avenue Church of Christ
Mount Dora Children's Home
A Christ-Centered haven for children and families in need.
Since our founding in 1945, we have served as a Christ-centered haven for children and families who find themselves in need. This is a place where children are loved because we believe every child is a gift from God, made in His image and deserving of a good start in life. It is a place where children, single parents and others we serve can feel safe and be assured of receiving a friendly "hello" from people on campus.
Mount Dora Childrens Home shares a wooded, 70-acre campus with Mount Dora Christian Academy.
The campus is just a few blocks from Mount Dora's quaint downtown district and offers a safe, home-like environment for our children and families.
Our programs
While we offer counseling for pregnant women and are licensed to provide adoptions and foster care services, the focus of our ministry is on two programs designed to help struggling children and families – a residential group care program for children and our single parent program.
Residential Group Care
Residential Group Care is for children ages 6 to 17 who are in need of a more stable home and family. Each group home is staffed by qualified, Christian house parents who take a personal interest in each child's welfare.

The Single-Parent Program
The Single-Parent Program (Single Parents Opting for Christ) provides hope and opportunity for single parents who find themselves alone and not sure where to turn for help. This program allows us to influence two generations, both the single parents and their children, while keeping a family unit intact and helping it to thrive.
