“Have you ever had a nightmare where you desperately tried to scream but no sound would escape your lips? It fills you with a sense of helplessness and panic, even if it’s just a dream. Yet, the suffocating feeling of being silenced is a ruthless reality for foster kids leaving care. It’s this all-encompassing foreboding and feeling of dread that no one is listening.

Every year in BC, more than 700 teenagers ‘age out’ of the foster care system. As soon as they turn 19 the only support system they’ve known is no longer available to them. But at just 19, with no confidence, no skills, and no support or resources, it’s setting these kids up for failure and a bleak future.

And far too many of them do fail – ending up homeless, living on the streets, addicted, or in trouble with the law. As a society, we have silenced these youth. To them, it feels like no one cares about them, and that makes it hard for them to care about themselves. Sometimes, they just want the pain to end.

Together, we can stop this from happening. With your donation this Christmas, SOS Children’s Village BC will be able to provide homeless and at-risk youth with much needed Transition to Adulthood (TTA) programming to mend their broken hearts and bring warmth to their lonely lives.

Don’t wait, your gift means a foster youth who has become numb from abuse and neglect will receive the support they need to heal and to develop to their fullest potential. You’re giving a young person a future!
