* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'', Patch used to live in one of those before being adopted, and she seems to have pretty fond memories of the place, as she still has friends there and loves to help other orphan ponies.

* ''Series/MillionYenWomen'' deconstructs the idea from the orphan's point of view. [[spoiler:Midori]] was abandonned by her parents at a young age. She ended up in an orphanage run by a couple who made it a rule to be called "mom" and "dad" by their wards and asked them to treat each other as sibilings. [[spoiler:Midori]] never liked the setup, considers it to have been an abnormal upbringing and wanred to get out as fast as she could. The only other orphan she considered anything close to an actual relative was an older boy who was asked to show her around upon her arrival.

* [[Fanfic/SkyholdAcademyYearbook Skyhold Academy]], a BoardingSchool in [[Franchise/DragonAge Thedas]], is actually something very much like this, but they keep it secret from most people. The students who board there during the school year are either orphans or come from abusive backgrounds, and the school is on a mission to rescue them and give them a safe place to grow up.



* The orphanage in ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'' where Lewis and Goob grow up appears to be one of these, complete with kindly matron Mildred. Interestingly, the DVD commentary says that Mildred is careful to not coddle the children ''too'' much since they need to be able to leave when adopted without emotional hang-ups. The biggest problem at Lewis's orphanage is, well, [[ReluctantMadScientist Lewis himself]], though he [[CharacterDevelopment gets better]].

* St. Helen of the Blessed Shroud Orphanage is, despite being run by The Penguin, an OrphanageOfLove. Because ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'' wouldn't have [[SavingTheOrphanage risked everything to save it]] otherwise. They also found out that their mentor, Curtis, would be thrown out on the street once the sale of the orphanage was final.

* The orphanage where Tim lives in ''WesternAnimation/{{Nocturna}}'' doesn't really feature too much in the movie, but it appears to be more or less this trope; children are given the run of the place during the daylight hours and there are plenty of toys to keep them amused. The only hitch is that Tim tends to be given rather a rough time by the other children because of his noisy bedtime ritual.

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

* Deconstructed a bit in ''Literature/DresdenFiles.'' Harry, who lived in one, points out that no matter how kind the people in the system are to you, it is still a system with lots of people to deal with.

* ''Anime/HanaNoKoLunlun'' has the heroine running across one in the South Italian countryside (not exactly mentioned ''where'' in Italy, but considering she had just left Sicily, it could be anywhere in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calabria Calabria]]), run by a nun named Sister Mariana and with kids from the age range of 5 to 15. The eldest children, lead by the HotBlooded Emilio, fret over cute little Lucero's IllGirl condition and desperately seek for the money they need for her operation, so they're overjoyed when there are rumors about a hidden treasure coming from WorldWarTwo. [[spoiler: It wasn't a treasure... but an old ''bomb''.]]
