SOS is committed to developing sustainable solutions to the problems that at-risk children face every day. We are committed to being a voice that calls a community to rally around these solutions.

SOS International was founded in 2000. When our founders, Dwayne and Leslie Weehunt, picked the SOS name they had a vision that the organization would grow to respond and meet needs of at-risk children in communities around the world.

We believe that there are things that we can do to save precious lives, and change the destiny of countless at-risk children locally and around the world.

We raise support, develop and implement solutions that provide for basic needs like food and water, safety & freedom, disaster relief, orphan care, foster care, shelter, education, infrastructure & child development as well as working to ensure that families in crisis have access to essential support services.

We believe every child matters

We believe that every desperate cry of a child, is worthy of hearing and responding to.

The first five years of a child's life form the foundation for their future. These are the most vulnerable years when it comes to a child's physical and mental development.  Meeting a child’s basic needs will drastically improve a child's prospects in life.

Our approach works to provide a pathway for at-risk children, to improve their likelihood of reaching and flourishing in adulthood.

We believe that there are 3 things we all can do to help children: provide resources for the work, volunteer in your community and ask others to join us in this important task.
