Brandon Orr is a Greenbriar alum

He lived five years in Greenbriar Children’s Center shelter for abused, neglected or runaway youths—and he’s glad he did.

“It was a good place. They treat the kids like family. The house parents treat kids like their own. It’s the best thing that happened to me. I could have been destitute or in jail,” the postal office supervisor said.

Greenbriar operates the shelter for young people age 12-17. It also has two early learning centers, Wendy’s Preschool and the W.W. Law Learning Center, for children six months to five years. In addition, it offers family and individual counseling and an independent living program, including apartments for young people age 18-21 who have aged out of foster care and need job-training and community support.
