Opening for Foster Caregivers at SOS Children's Village BC

If you are, or wish to become, a professional Caregiver in BC, are willing to foster 3 to 5 foster children, excited about being a contributing member of a mutually supportive village environment, and are willing to agree to a minimum five year commitment, please contact SOS BC today at office@sosbc.org with a subject line of “Village Membership Inquiry”. The Ministry of Children and Family Development, Vancouver Aboriginal Child and Family Services Society and other Designated Agencies, are the employers of Caregivers in BC and we look forward to working with them as partners in the acceptance process of any applicant to the SOS BC Village.

As Canada’s only SOS Children’s Village, SOS Children’s Village British Columbia provides homes, a supportive village environment, and programs to help foster children and youth in need grow into caring, self-reliant adults. Additionally we are developing programs to support foster parents on their journey to become professional Caregivers. Located in Surrey, BC, on a beautiful 2 ½ acre campus, we have five (six bedroom) homes, transition suites, sports courts, playgrounds, forested trails, and a Village Centre housing homework and therapy rooms, a music studio, and activities space. SOS is embracing a trauma informed interactive therapeutically intensive approach to working with foster families including: Trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, Expressive Arts, Cognitive Rehabilitation, Neurofeedback, Narrative, and other therapies as determined by a foster child’s needs. Other programming includes: Homework Club, Sounds of Learning (group and individual music lessons), Camps, Recreation, Cultural, Transition to Adulthood, and After Care. After Care reflects SOS belief in lifelong connection with our children, nineteen is just a birthday, at SOS children who have been in our Village can expect lifelong support. All programs and support for the foster families in our Village are provided at no cost to them, and a limited number of families also receive rent subsidies.
