David Atkins and John Botica on behalf of S.O.S Children's Villages Illinois

Every Child Deserves a Home

In America more than 518,000 children are in foster care. Three in four children are separated from their siblings. Most will live in six or more foster homes. And once the children age out of foster care:

40% live on public assistance

46% never finish high school

84% have a child within 18 months

25% are homeless at some time

There must be a better way ... and there is ...

SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES ILLINOIS provides a viable alternative to traditional foster care. Children who come to live at SOS stay with their biological brothers and sisters in a private home. A full-time, professionally trained foster parent lives with them, and the whole Village gives them support, compassion and strength.
