* Mother Karen's home in ''Literature/{{Spellbent}}'' and ''Shotgun Sorceress'' by LucySnyder is one of these. Mother Karen herself rivals [[MisterRogersNeighborhood Fred Rogers]] in the "Friend to all children" category and is unfailingly kind even when monumentally stressed out. What she can't do, she relies on the teenage orphans (raised under her sterling example, of course) to do.

* An example can be found in the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI serial ''ComicBook/GoldenEyesAndHerHeroBill'': after selling off the jewelry and miscellaneous {{Plunder}} she "reclaimed" from the German officer who tried to shoot her, Golden Eyes finds she has "enough and more in [her] small fist to provide for around hundred French babies—orphaned by War!" The next paragraph finds her at a "beautiful chateau," far from the front lines, surrounded by happy children who call her "petite maman." It's unclear whether or not Golden Eyes founded the orphanage or if she's just a generous benefactor, as the war orphans are never mentioned again.[[note]] The installment functions as a sort of a BreatherEpisode (and a chance for Golden Eyes to PetTheDog even more than she usually does) after the her capture by the above-mentioned German officer, which resulted in a combination IHaveYouNowMyPretty & GoGoEnslavement arc, followed by a JustInTime rescue from Golden Eyes' sweetheart and their CanineCompanion when she's moments away from being executed for espionage.

* In the ''Literature/DreambloodDuology'', there's the Hetawa's House of Children. Everyone seems to come out of it as HappilyAdopted, as it provides for and educates children who would otherwise have had to grow up in poverty and on their own.

* ''Film/MadameRosa'': Madame Rosa runs an unlicensed orphanage in her own apartment. But she plainly loves her little charges, as shown by how tenderly she [[ComfortingComforter tucks them in]].

* "In an old house in Paris, all covered in vines, lived twelve little girls, in two straight lines. The smallest one was ''{{Madeline}}''". Though it's technically a boarding school, Madeline herself is an orphan (in the [[Film/{{Madeline}} live-action movie]], anyway[[note]]In the original books, she at least has a father, as revealed in the very first one.[[/note]]) and the other kids' parents never really figure into the plot. %%If this is wrong and they do indeed, please take the "Repair, Don't Respond" route and remove that line.

* While it was pretty dickish of Franchise/{{Superman}} to put his cousin ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} in an orphanage after her arrival in ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'', at least he cared enough to make sure it was a really nice one.
* For Franchise/{{Superman}} himself, the Smallville Orphanage (where the Kents left him at, before returning to formally adopt him) was usually also shown as such.

* In JohnCWright's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfChaos'', the boarding school straddles the line between this and OrphanageOfFear. On the one hand, they are treated affectionately and given an excellent education. On the other hand, the teachers are under orders to kill them if they start remembering things.
