SOS Children’s Village BC

Through our Village model, we provide family-based alternative care to children and youth with foster care experience. This includes support to youth, kids, and caregivers through residential services, program and support services, and wraparound care.

We believe in keeping siblings together and in family strengthening, creating a sense of community and belonging, and in educating and empowering children to become contributing members of society.

COVID-19 UPDATE: The coronavirus crisis continues to be monitored by all teams at SOS Children’s Village BC. At this time, it’s important that we reflect on the importance of our families and our communities. In order for us to continue responding to our families, children, and youth, we’re working around the clock to ensure they’re receiving the help they need during this pandemic.
