Great Hearts Initiatives | SOS Children’s Villages USA

Mission

Founded in 1949, we are the largest nonprofit in the world dedicated to the care of orphaned, abandoned and other vulnerable children.

Through our family support and care programs, medical centers, schools and emergency relief efforts we impact the lives of millions of children and families.

In 1949, Hermann Gmeiner laid the foundations for the first SOS Children’s Villages in Imst, Austria where forty Austrian children in need would find homes after the desolation of World War II. Just a few years later, SOS Villages had been created in Germany, France, and Italy, for children who had been orphaned or abandoned.

The mission Hermann Gmeiner envisioned was simple, but life changing: to provide children in need with a mother, a home, brothers and sisters, and a supportive community to grow up in. Mr. Gmeiner’s idea proved to be a sustainable model for a children's charity

Of all the children's charities, ours stands out due to our mission of building families for children in need, while helping them to shape their own futures and sharing in the development of their communities. Our vision for the world’s children is that every child should belong to a family and grow with love, respect and security.

SOS Children’s Villages is actively supporting vulnerable children and their refugee families at virtually every point along their journey—from Syria and Lebanon to many countries in Eastern Europe. Our long and respected presence in these countries gives us the experience and flexibility to respond quickly and effectively to this new crisis.
