What Does Home Mean To You?
When you lose a home, you lose more than shelter. You lose stability, security and human connections. And when your days are spent consumed with the anxiety of what your nights will bring, you lose the ability to move forward. SOS helps families move from loss to gain, from the isolating fear of homelessness to a stable home and reclaiming of their lives.
Where Do You Turn In Crisis?
Everyone, at one time or another, experiences crisis. And when a crisis hits, we all know the irreplaceable value of those who come alongside us to offer a kind word, wise counsel and a helping hand. Since 1970, SOS has been a lifeline for thousands of children, families and individuals in our communities by providing a constant and caring place to turn.
What Do You Give a Child?
Children delight in gifts. They relish play and are eager to learn. But the joys of childhood ultimately rest on a sense of security. Every parent can attest to the anxiety even seemingly small changes in routine can bring. Homelessness is a terrifying and deeply traumatic disruption for a child. SOS helps these children move from a place of fear to a place of freedom.
How Do You Show You Care?
We each have ways we most enjoy showing that we care. For some of us, it's through giving gifts. For others, it's devoting time or engaging in a kind act. SOS is strengthened by the talents of our partners and volunteers and the diverse forms their giving takes. We invite you to join us by exploring the ways you can best show you care.
