SOS Children's Villages in the United States

Poverty Amid Plenty

The United States of America is a nation of contrasts, an economic powerhouse but at the same time, its wealth inequality is rising at an alarming rate. According to UNICEF, 30% of American children live below the poverty line, which is significantly above the global average of 20%.

This hurts vulnerable families, and naturally, their children.

Family-Centered Approach: Our Work in the United States 

In the U.S.SOS Children’s Villages focuses on improving the lives of children who are part of the child welfare system or at risk of entering the child welfare system. We currently have a presence in two states – Florida and Illinois. 

The SOS model works: 100% of SOS youth in the U.S. graduate from high school, and SOS alumni are six times more likely to graduate from college than youth in traditional foster care.
