Our Focus as a Charity

We support foster children and vulnerable youth because we believe every child should belong to a family and grow with love, respect, and security. The statistics show that we as a society are failing our children. SOS BC effectively meets the needs of those vulnerable youth who are the key to our future.

relative or in kinship care

685
children are on youth agreements in

In Canada there are over
67,000
children in out-of-home care (foster, treatment centres, shelters).
