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.
Changing Times, New Needs
Thursday, March 06, 2014
Imagine a time when you experienced a major life change – the excitement, the activity it incited, how it seemed to affect every single area of your life. SOS Community Services is experiencing something very similar with our shift to a choice pantry, an exciting and positive new direction for our food program. In the midst of all the excitement, we have found that the change in our food program has led to some changes in our volunteer needs. In the past, with your help, we were able to serve 471 families, representing 1,506 individuals in a single month. Right now, we need you to continue this help more than ever!
