More about Brandon’s Forever Home

Brandon’s Forever Home is a 501c3 charitable organization located in the heart of downtown Hazleton, Pennsylvania created to raise awareness about children in foster care and their need for permanent loving homes.

It was founded by State. Rep. Tarah Toohil and Attorney Lorine Angelo Ogurkis, once they realized the need in their community and decided to start the foundation to assist children in need. The organization was named Brandon’s Forever Home after a child the Toohil family fostered and wanted to adopt.
