At SOS Children's Villages Illinois
, we help children whose world has been turned upside down by parental abuse, neglect, or abandonment. We offer them a place to call home and space to heal. By keeping brothers and sisters together, with a full time professional foster parent in an individual home, we rebuild a loving family life. Therapeutic services help children regain self-esteem and trust in others. Parents, staff, and volunteers help our children dream of a brighter future as they grow into caring, productive, self-reliant adults.
"To me, SOS is home, it is where I grew up with my brothers and sisters, and it is where I go to visit my family. That is all that matters."
-Tish, former SOS resident
