SOS develops sustainable solutions to the problems that at-risk children face every day. We are a voice that calls a community to rally around these solutions.
SOS International was founded in 2000. Our founders, Dwayne and Leslie Weehunt, picked the SOS name with the vision that the organization would respond to and meet the needs of at-risk children in communities around the world.
We develop and implement solutions that help secure and protect at-risk children. These solutions include providing basic needs, like food and water, safety & freedom for human trafficking victims, disaster relief and community development.
We believe every child matters
We believe that every cry of an at-risk 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 drastically improves a child's prospects in life.
Our approach works to provide a pathway for at-risk children, improving their likelihood of reaching and flourishing in adulthood.
