is what we do
SOS Children’s Villages Florida (SOS) opened in 1993 to care for abused, or children suffering from forms of neglect in South Florida. We are home to up to 72 foster children ages birth 18. At SOS, special emphasis is placed on keeping biological siblings together to lessen their trauma while separated from their families.
At one of the most difficult times in their young lives, our Village offers a safe and supportive environment for our community’s foster children in 13 single-family homes with full-time foster parents in a residential neighborhood cul-de-sac in Coconut Creek. In addition to safety, security, and stability, we are committed to providing vital support services for our children, to help them deal with their emotions, academic deficiencies, and social skills and behavior. We are also committed to preparing our children to live independently.
Our on-site programs include mental health counseling, a behavioral step system program in each home, entertaining activities, tutoring, a mentoring program, independent life skills classes, and Next Steps services for youth who have aged out of foster care and transition to life beyond SOS.
We hope to work together to provide children in need with the very best chance to realize their full potential and thrive as healthy, happy, contributing members of our society.
As we have gotten through the past year of the coronavirus pandemic, we continue to monitor the situation and make decisions based on the current situation. We encourage you to check our website periodically for updates. The following measures are in place until further notice.
SPECIAL COVID UPDATE
