Omada Foundation

Founded in 2023 by long-time associates and friends Douglas Corbin and Cary Hyden, Omada Foundation for Children is an organization that works to ensure the well-being of children and adolescents through access to quality mental health services. Mr. Corbin and Mr. Hyden spent years working together at Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC) where Doug served as Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer and Cary served as Chair of the CHOC Foundation Board of Directors. After both retired and were looking for the next challenge, Doug approached Cary with his vision for Omada, and the Foundation was born.

The name of the Foundation is Greek for “team”, an intentional nod to the essential nature of teamwork for making their vision a reality. As a non-profit organization committed to helping children and adolescents with a focus specifically on mental health care, the Foundation has been launched and will work to underwrite projects and events in support of its mission and vision.
