♥ SOS Children’s Village BC is unique because we have an After Care Program. Even after youth complete one or more of our programs, we continue to check in with them and provide support if they require it. Youth don’t age out at SOS BC. Like a parent, we are always there for them if they need help in the future.
♥ The ‘SOS’ in our name is actually a short form of ‘Societas Socialis’. This is a Latin phrase and translates literally to “social service society”.
♥ SOS Children’s Village BC supports children in care here in British Columbia, while SOS Children’s Villages Canada supports children in developing countries.
♥ Unlike most children’s charities, SOS Children’s Village BC receives very little government funding and relies on donations from caring people in the community. This is because our model of care is improved and different from the provincial foster care system.
