* The Children's Home in Warsaw run by Janusz Korczak appears to have been this. The children had their own court, they were treated fairly, and the two heads worried themselves silly if a child refused to eat. Despite offers from virtually ''everyone'' (Jewish Council, Polish Resistance, German Police) to keep him safe, director Korczak went with the 192 survivors to Treblinka extermination camp.

The director even sacrificed his own safety to go with the children when they were shipped off to be murdered in a concentration camp, despite offers from friends to hide and shelter him. (Of course, they didn't have room for 100 children, so he made his choice.)

* While it was pretty dickish of Franchise/{{Superman}} to put his cousin {{Supergirl}} in an orphanage after her arrival in the ''SilverAge'', at least he cared enough to make sure it was a really nice one.

* In the {{New52}} reboot of Franchise/{{Batman}}, the ultimate [[Comicbook/NightOfTheOwls Talon]] [[spoiler:Bruce Wayne's ''brother'' Thomas Wayne Junior]] was seriously injured in his youth and sent to a prominent children's hospital [[spoiler:by his parents Thomas and Martha Wayne]] to recover in secret. Thanks to the Waynes' funding, the hospital fit this trope. Sadly, when they were killed the funding dried up and the hospital became an OrphanageOfFear. Talon wants revenge on Bruce [[spoiler:for their parents' deaths which lead directly to his life becoming a living hell.]] At least, [[UnreliableNarrator that's his story]], Batman points out several flaws in it, but never learns the truth either way.

* [[TheHero Rosette]] and [[IllBoy Joshua]] Christopher from ''VideoGame/ChronoCrusade'' grew up in an OrphanageOfLove named Seventh Bell after their parent's deaths. It's very understaffed (seeming to only have a single aging woman named Ms. Jean watching the kids) so the orphans seem to end up doing a lot of the chores, but they're well taken care of and seem to be spoiled rotten. It seemed like the ideal place for them to live, until [[ComesGreatInsanity Joshua went insane]] [[DealWithTheDevil when he put a pair of demon's horns on his head]], [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed destroyed the orphanage]] and [[TakenForGranite froze all of the orphans and Ms. Jean in stone]].

* The Maxwell Church from ''Anime/GundamWing'' was very poor, but otherwise it did well and was run by the kind Father Maxwell and his assistant Sister Helen. [[spoiler: Pity it was blown up in the war and the only survivor, Duo, was [[BrokenHero quite traumatised]].]]

* The orphanage in which [[Literature/HarryPotter Voldemort]] grew up is more or less described as a pleasant, if gloomy, place to be raised -- Tom Riddle himself was the problem.

** From a certain point of view, Hogwarts itself could be seen as one of these as far as several students are concerned. [[spoiler: Which makes it all the worse in the seventh book when the school is run by Death Eaters.]] *** Harry realizes that this is one more thing he has in common with Voldemort and Snape. All three were lost boys who found a home in Hogwarts. Even Voldemort is uncharacteristically sentimental about the place.
