Make a Financial Impact Call-to-Action

Currently, the state of foster care is a “North American epidemic”. But there is a better way. The unique Village model is based on SOS International Founder Hermann Gmeiner’s belief that a loving and consistent professional caregiver, family atmosphere, home, and community create a circle of healing, belonging, and growth for a child in need. By establishing this circle of healing, children develop resilience and renewed hope leading to their future successes.

These elements are evident in the local Village, located in a picturesque area of Surrey, where the need is most acute. Since opening in 1999, the SOS BC Village – the only SOS Children’s Village in all of Canada – has provided counselling, art therapy, neurofeedback training, and more to allow youth (many of whom have mental conditions) to recover from their traumatic past. The Village model is based on lifelong engagement and embracing the cultural heritage of each child. Please give today.
