Our Focus

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

600
children are on youth agreements in
B.C.

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

Happy Friday - Ignorance

 
Ignorance. We have had an incredible two weeks. Dr. Lise (our new Clinical Director) and Mr. Marc DeLong spent many hours with the staff and our kids. WOW, what a great series of events and activities. Our long-term visioning session - focused on SOS BC becoming a therapeutically intensive Village, or better termed a ‘Child Strengthening and Achievement System’ - was incredible. I’m still trying to take it all in. More about that next time, as today I wanted to touch on something that has become so clear to me in the last two weeks.
