A Village of Caring - Our Partners

              title = "A Village of Caring - Our Partners"; arg(0) = "node"                            

 
The foster children and vulnerable youth who call the SOS BC Village home are supported by a 'Village of Caring' that makes all of our life-changing programs possible. Our many community partners who come from industries of all shapes and sizes make up this vital Village of Caring.

They recognize that SOS Children's Village BC works with the root causes of generational foster care and homelessness, through our lifelong commitment to providing stability, healing, and practical life skills for children and youth. That steadiness is what we are all about. And our kids feel it – they know there is a community wrapped around them that believes in them, without even having met them. It makes a world of difference to their self-confidence and sense of belonging.

When you shop at these businesses, you are supporting our cause. All of our community partners are crucial to building our services and homes for foster children, and we are grateful to each one for their unique contributions.

From the very beginning, this wonderful source for quality fashionable apparel has been a strong SOS BC supporter. We love their “dress global - care local” style! 

 

 

Able Auctions

Sometimes it takes a little time and effort to find treasure where there doesn’t seem to be any at first glance. We understand that at SOS BC, and are glad to have Able Auctions as an annual partner, because they really understand that too. They have a long history as great community supporters.

 

 

Alix Elsey Real Estate

Realtor Alix Elsey donates a portion of the commission from each of her sales to SOS Children's Village BC. What a great initiative by Alix Elsey Real Estate, we so appreciate it. "I donate to SOS BC with each home I sell!" appears on all her marketing materials.

A huge thank you to realtor Mike Karamanian for setting up an initiative where he donates $250 to SOS BC for each apartment or townhouse, or $500 for each single family house, bought or sold through him.

 

 

Grand Arc Beauty Studio

Grand Arc studio at 1150 West Hastings Street believe beauty is more than skin deep. True beauty comes from the heart. With the blessing of their enthusiastic clients, they donated an eyebrow-raising $1,000 to SOS Children's Village BC from their December 2017 sales. Not only that, but the partners now donate a continuous contribution of 5% of their earnings each month to SOS BC!

 

 

Easy Computer

For residential computer support, these geeks can’t be beat! Not only will they help you keep your home systems secure and up to speed, they make a donation to celebrate every new client. We know they are wonderful, because their pro side also keeps our office – and therefore our children and youth – cyber safe.

Magellan Law Group

We are very blessed by members of the business community who are passionate about making their local communities better. Magellan Law Group LLC in Langley is a perfect example of generous giving back. They support local health and anti-poverty organizations, schools, sports … and the important and ground-breaking child development of SOS Children’s Village BC.

One of their motives for supporting us is the deeply fundamental nature of our Village, which has positive effects for generations to come. As one of their team put it, “Saving one kid will make a difference to everyone they will ever meet in their life. That’s pretty amazing when you think about it.” Yes it is! Thank you Magellan Law group, we – and our kids – love how you think.

The owners of Tag have been great supporters of SOS BC for many years. They understand the importance of creating connections and feeling part of something that is bigger than you are: a village.

The folks at WebSec understand that everything is easy and intuitive … as long as you know how! Not only does Websec offer a lot of training for businesses, as annual partners they are helping SOS BC to provide a safe environment for our kids. They model the kind of patience, teaching, and creativity of solutions that we believe in.

 

 

Hedden Chong Chartered Professional Accountants

We appreciate the gentle and generous way this partnership have come forward as annual supporters for our Village. While helping you through your accounting, you can be inspired by their commitment to making sure that a kid’s life starts adding up to better results.

 

 

TELUS

We appreciate that every year TELUS employees come out to our Village and volunteer their time to help with site maintenance, which allows us to spend less on administration and more on our programs.

 

 

Envision Financial

What doesn't Envision Financial do? As one of our largest and longest community partners, Envision's support and grants were vital in having the homes built in our Village. They also have the Envision Financial Employees Endowment which grows through the fundraising efforts of employees at Envision, and we have received thousands from it. Employees help determine how to distribute the donations generated by this fund. Additionally, every year Envision had Make A Difference Days where employees eagerly volunteer with maintenance and projects at the Village, and to put on events for our kids (such as the Halloween party). They place employees for internships with us and donate loads of Christmas presents for our kids. They even help us put on budgeting and credit workshops for at-risk youth in our Transition to Adulthood program.
