Quality Care for Children

Building loving, stable families for vulnerable children.

WE PROVIDE STABILITY

A stable, nurturing environment lays the foundation for a child’s healthy development. SOS Children’s Villages builds families for orphaned, abandoned and other vulnerable children who have no one else to care for them. When children cannot stay with their family or are abandoned and all alone, we give them—along with their siblings—a safe home where they can grow up in an SOS family of their very own. Like you, we believe that no child should be left to fend for themselves. 

Unfortunately, not every child has this advantage. 140 million children have lost one or both parents. Without the stability of a family, a child faces an increased risk of malnutrition, violence, exploitation, child trafficking and other life-threatening circumstances.
