Released Time programs are recognized across the United States. Just this year Released Time Programs celebrated 100 years of sharing the Good News with children across the country. Released Time in Orange has served nearly 70,000 children since its beginning. We are continually affirmed when we talk to Released Time Alumnae of how important the program is in helping build self confidence and giving children a strong understanding of life and greater self purpose. This leads to them being stronger and more responsible citizens in school and in their community. Children are a precious gift and giving them purpose in life has value greater than money can buy.
