What We Do

SOS Children’s Villages builds loving, stable families for orphaned, abandoned and other vulnerable children in 135 countries, including the United States.



Strengthening families and communities.


Long-Term Care

Belonging to a family means growing up feeling safe to be yourself and to dream freely about your future. It also means having all-around emotional and social support so you can chase those dreams.



Setting young adults up for success.



Advocating for children’s rights, voices and lives.
