SOS stands for Societas Socialis, which was a social club, organized to raise funds for the care of orphaned children in Austria who had been displaced by the 2nd World War and it means socially responsible society.

Foster Care

Foster care is the temporary placement of a child who is in need of care and protection. The child is placed in the care of a suitable person who is not the parent or guardian of the child. In all these instances, the children are placed by a competent authority (Justice System) for the purpose of alternative care by preselected, qualified, approved and supervised State Partners, suited for providing such care.

Family Strenghtening

We live in a world where many children have been deprived of their right to a caring family environment. All too often, these children have nowhere to find the protection, care and support required for their healthy development. In finding ways to address the situation of those children who are at risk of losing the care of their biological family, the Family Strengthening Programmes were developed. Through these programmes we aim to prevent children from losing the care of their family. To build a society where all children can enjoy a caring family environment we join hands with individuals, families, communities, local authorities and other partners.
