It takes a village at the Los Angeles Orphanage Guild, and we depend upon the generosity and commitment of our vendors, members and friends to provide assistance to Maryvale and its children.


At our recent Be a Friend, Bring a Friend fundraising luncheon we raised more than $50,000 from our dedicated “village.”


How did we do it? Members and friends shopped, vendors contributed a large percentage of their sales, and everyone donated to our cause!


We are so grateful to our supporters!

KTLA’s Wendy Burch has become not only a perennial emcee to our luncheons, but brings beauty, intelligence and wit to brighten our annual events.

Former Maryvale resident Patricia Almazan spoke lovingly about her years at Maryvale. She composed a poem, “Maryvale, My Fostering Mother.” To learn more about Patricia’s journey, please click here.
