SOS Children’s Village BC

Social Service


For over 23 years, we have provided family-based foster care for children and youth in our communities through our Village model. This includes support to caregivers, youth, and kids through programs, 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.

Every child belongs to a family and grows with love, respect, and security.

Our Mission What we do 

We empower children, youth and families in need to grow into caring, self-reliant people from the foundation of our core village.

Our Values – What keeps us strong 

Courage: We take action
We keep our promises
We believe in each other
We are reliable partners

How your gift will be used

By leaving SOS BC a gift in your will, you can fund programs like our Transition to Adulthood program that helps youth who may otherwise fall through the cracks. We provide one-on-one support to help navigate this challenging transition. With your support, we aim to end youth homelessness, decrease experiences of depression and anxiety, and give youth the confidence and resources to fulfill their goals.

Additionally, our mental health programs provide emotional support, art therapies, and individual counselling to children and families in the community. Children and youth also participate in our educational support program which encourages interactions with peer groups in open, non-threatening spaces, further promoting their social and emotional growth.

Your gift helps vulnerable and marginalized children and youth in BC have a place to call home, a sense of belonging, and community. Your gift will ensure a bright future for children and youth in need and will pay it forward for generations to come.
