* Subverted in ''Manga/OnePiece'': [[spoiler: Charlotte "Big Mom" Linlin spent some time in one run by the famous BadassPreacher Mother Carmel... but in reality, Carmel was a slave trader who took in unwanted kids to then sell them to pirates and the Marines. She wanted to pawn off [[PersonOfMassDestruction Linlin]] to the highest bidder, so she took the ''incredibly'' big and powerful little girl in and pretended to love her while enabling [[CreepyChild her worst habits]]... and during Linlin's sixth birthday it bit her and the other orphans in the ass. [[ImAnHumanitarian Lite]][[CannibalismSuperpower rally]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', [[ChurchMilitant Libra the War Monk]] builds and mantains one of these in all of his endings [[note]]Save the one with a girl Avatar, since those are generic. (Though nothing says they couldn't have done so anyway.)[[/note]]. If he's married, his wife (and presumably their child) will help him out take care of the orphans -- with different results, depending on who his lady is: Miriel is a bit stand-offish, both Lissa and Nowi become OneOfTheKids, Tharja is {{Tsundere}} to them, Sully is the local CoolBigSis, etc.

*** In ''Thracia 776'', [[spoiler: Misha works for the Silesse army to help feeding and raising the children of one of these. She can be recruited into the main group, however.]]
** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword's]]'' epilogue, Lucius [[{{Expy}} (who Libra above was based on)]] also opens an orphanage, [[spoiler: what with him being a war orphan as well]]. It's implied to be the same one that Nino's children, Lugh and Raigh, grew up in between that game and ''Sword of Seals'', [[spoiler: which unfortunately [[DoomedByCanon doesn't bode well for Lucius]], since that orphanage was destroyed during Bern's invasion. (The ''closest'' to a subversion of this bad ending would be his shared one with his master Raymond aka Raven, in which Lucius remains as Raven's vassal as they go WalkingTheEarth.)]]

* The Children's Home in Warsaw run by the FriendToAllChildren 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 [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust Treblinka extermination camp]].

He didn't want them to be worried, so he kept them oblivious to the facility's purpose for as long as possible, and he didn't want to live without them.

* In the SaintSeiya anime, the title character and his older sister Seika spent some time in one of these before Seiya was forcibly taken in by the Kido Fundation and Seika disappeared in search of him. It's featured once in a while since Seiya's UnluckyChildhoodFriend Miho still lives and works in it, so in his (almost nonexistant) free time Seiya tends to hang out there, sometimes with Saori and the other Saints joining him. [[spoiler: This is a plot point in one of the non-serial movies: Eri, the newest worker at said orphanage, is at the receiving end of a GrandTheftMe by Eris the Goddess of Revenge.]]

* It's implied that Father Andersong is the head of one of these in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' (though, since a lot of these orphans then go on to become part of the ChurchMilitant, the reader may not consider it to be a good place to grow up).
** Admittedly there can be a certain amount of FridgeLogic here. The Church may not be consciously raising {{Tykebomb}}s but when your father figure's a CrazyAwesome BadassPreacher its bound to affect your world view a little.

* 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.
