SOS Children’s Village

SOS Children’s Village is the world’s largest privately funded non-governmental, non-denominational organization caring for fostered and abandoned children. It has existed for over 65 years with a presence in 134 countries and over 560 Villages. BC is home to the only SOS Children’s Village in Canada.

SOS Children’s Village BC provides a community-based family care service to improve and sustain the quality of life for foster children and foster families. Foster children are frequently at risk of emotional disturbances, delayed social development and poor educational performance. Foster parents who raise these children require ongoing special resources and support. SOS BC enhances the development and healing of foster children by addressing their physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. We actively create opportunities, programs and services for children to become balanced, responsible, contributing members of society. We seek long term stability for the foster children and families in our village including a strong focus on transition to adulthood and family reunification programming.
