SOS Children's Villages is the world's largest non-governmental, non-demoninational child development organization. It has existed for over 60 years with a presence in 133 nations and over 550 Villages. British Columbia is home to the only SOS Children's Village in Canada.

SOS Children's Village BC provides a community-based family care service to improve and sustain the quality of life for foster children and foster families. Foster children are frequently at risk of emotional disturbances, delayed social development and poor educational performance. Foster parents who raise these children require ongoing special resources and support. SOS BC enhances the development and healing of foster children by addressing their physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. They actively create opportunities, programs and services for children to become balanced, responsible, contributing members of society. They seek long term stability for the foster children and families in our village including a strong focus on transition to adulthood and family reunification programming.

They have developed a unique program structure that focuses on two distince areas: the personalized needs of our village foster families and community outreach programs for foster kids and vulernable youth.
