Family-Like Care

Family-Like Care

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.

Number of children in Care


Our family approach in SOS Children’s Village is based on four principles: Every child needs a mother. Together with their brothers and sisters, children grow naturally in their home, in a supportive village setting. We help them to shape their future. We ensure that children live as active members of society according to their culture and religion. We help children recognize and express their personal abilities, interests and skills. We ensure that children acquire the educational and professional skills they need to become successful and contributing members of society.


Family-Like Care consists of four stages.

Children's Village - Nicosia

SOS Mother, SOS Aunt, biological siblings and SOS brothers live together in a family home.

Youth House - Kyrenia

They live in different family homes with their brothers and other friends. While some of our youth continue their education life, others have started their business life. Here, young people progress in line with their philosophy of life, and youth counselors can help them make the right decisions.

Semi-Independent Living

Young people live in different regions by renting apartments. With their increasing responsibilities, they open up their doors to fully independent living.

Independent Living

Young people take their knowledge and experience in SOS and they fly from the nest. We continue to provide our spiritual support throughout their lives.
