Parent Driven Autism Services are designed to help youth aged 6-19 with programs that are flexible and give families the ability to choose the services that are right for their child. Get started by visiting the 'Our Programs' section.
Children unable to live with their biological families need to grow up in stable alternative families that provide them with maximum opportunities for success. Family and safe communities are a child's most important influences in life.
If we can assist foster families to get stronger, and if we can give kids in foster care opportunities they wouldn’t normally have, we can make a difference that can have long-lasting positive outcomes.
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.
