Endowment

SOS Children’s Villages - Florida has a designated fund with the Community Foundation of Broward: the SOS Children’s Villages - Florida Endowment Fund. This serves as a permanent endowment for SOS. The ending asset value of this fund at December 31, 2010, was $1,363,500. The Fund is the property of the Foundation and its assets are carried by the Foundation. SOS may spend a designated portion of the annual interest earned by the fund.


Looking back, looking ahead 2010 Highlights As 2010 came to a close, SOS Florida faced a unique milestone. We turned 18! We’ve witnessed an entire generation grow up in our Village - an SOS Generation. The last of our original children have graduated high school, starting life on their own with the support of our After Care program. It’s hard not to feel nostalgic, looking back at all of the changes. We’ve opened new homes, welcomed and said goodbye to countless families of children, fine-tuned how we staff our homes to suit the needs of all our boys and girls and developed our own behavior system and service programs to help us become more than a shelter or a place to lay a weary head for a short while. We have a new vision for everything we provide. We see our efforts continue to multiply through the successes and triumphs of our Alumni. Bachelors and Masters Degrees, fledgling businesses, first cars, even in caring for their own children are testaments to the doors we opened and the opportunities we share. But there is a new generation at the Village today. One with just as much potential, just as much desire and need. We are no longer creating services, but enhancing them. It is our responsibility to give our children a sense of family, to give them the home they deserve and to give them back hope for the future. It’s hard to say which will be greater, the generation we have raised or the generation yet to come. All we know is that we have changed lives together and we are so proud to share this amazing experience with you. The experience and challenge are just beginning. In 2011, we work to ensure our services and programs adapt to our children’s changing needs, to provide all of life’s necessities such as special childhood experiences for every child, to maintain our aging homes that are beginning to require those bigger repairs, and to expand our Village community center and homes. But we know we will continue to succeed because we do so together for our children. Thank you for being a part of our family. Sincerely, Jeffrey M Zirulnick

Trip of a Lifetime For the past four years, SOS teens who are beginning their transition from foster care to independent adults are invited to take part in the Trip of a LIFEtime. The program brings foster children from SOS and HANDY, another foster care program, to Washington, DC, for a week to explore our history and our culture. The trip is more than a sight-seeing tour. The teens have the chance to spend time with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Alcee Hastings for a congressional classroom and an in-depth look at our government at work. “The Trip opened my eyes to a world of possiblities beyond my own neighborhoods,” said Brice Calleins, a trip alumnus. “Visiting the Capitol motivated me to succeed in college and one day pursue a career in which I can give back to the community and even the nation.” Plans for the 2011 Trip are already in the works. Pictured: The 2010 group visits US Rep. Alcee Hastings.

Gaining Experience

In 2010, the SOS Intern Program for former foster children welcomed its second group of young adults eager for experience. The program, funded through a grant from the Community Foundation of Broward, was established in 2009 to provide a means for former SOS kids to earn a stable paycheck and receive on the job training.

service and basic computer skills. No matter the position, these young adults walk away with a better chance of finding good employment in the future.

The Interns are offered a choice of positions at the Village. Facilities Interns have the chance to learn basic maintenance and repair skills as they help with the upkeep of our homes, vehicles and campus. Office Interns develop improved customer

“I like learning and I get to learn a lot of things here so, mainly, it’s for the experience. I can put it on my resume and see I did something with my life.” - Rosanna Disla, SOS Alumnus & Intern


Steps to Independence Part of growing up is learning to control your behavior; it can be a difficult thing for kids to learn, especially for kids in foster care. Making good decisions can be challenging at times, too. At SOS Village, we understand how critical it is for us to teach our children behavior control and good decision-making – they are life skills that are essential to their ultimate success. Because we take it so seriously, SOS has designed and implemented its own Behavior Step System. It rewards the children for good behaviors and forces them to think about why behaving badly only hurts them in the long run. Each step provides an opportunity to build a foundation for their future - for their life beyond foster care. As children progress through the Steps, they gain both responsibilities and privileges. SOS kids receive points daily for meeting expectations, and consistently earning their point goal moves them up a step. Of course, the boys and girls don’t like the consequences of bad behavior, but respond well to the clearly defined rules and written tracking system. SOS is known to be a “tough” place to live among some of the older foster kids, but many of them want to come here to live because they know that they can earn the priviledge to do things they can’t in other foster homes.

My Steps by SOS Alumnus Kandice Hart, age 18 As adults we know that for every decision we make there are consequences. Whether good or bad. We are taught to ask permission before using something that does not belong to us. Taught to be on time for all appointments and try our best to be our best. So when asked how the SOS Step System has impacted my life, my answer is very simple. The skills I have gained from the Step System will help me in life.

It is the final step that we all strive for, Independence. A step that speaks for itself. A step that says to everyone, “I am responsible,” “I am honest,” “I have the basic skills I need to succeed” and “I am ready to take on anything that you throw at me.” But to make it to Independence takes a lot of hard work, dedication and the will to succeed.

The SOS Step System allows us all the opportunity to grow and gain the different skills we need towards our road to independence. Those of us who take I am 18 years old and, as society would say, I advantage of those skills understand that the rules, am now “an adult.” And those decisions and the steps, and the hard work are there to help us, consequences I spoke about now begin to play not hold us back. an even bigger role in my life. I wouldn’t know what decisions to make in my adult life had it not been My name is Kandice Hart. I have been a resident for the system at SOS. The Step System, or the of SOS for a little over three years and I have Level System as many of my peers would refer to successfully completed all the steps in my road it, is broken down into four steps. The first three to independence. What I take with me as I start - Assistance, Supervision and Transition - are there my adult journey will play a significant role in my life forever. to prepare and teach us.


giving back their own way SOS Florida continues to grow and our children continue to thrive because of the overwhelming support we receive from the community every day. But that support comes from more than just dollars. It comes from time and heart as well. From volunteer initiatives at the office to sharing a day or a few minutes of time, Volunteering has never been trendier. With so much desire, our friends and neighbors have come up with great projects that are unique and creative ways to support our children. And we are grateful for them all.

JARDEN EMPLOYEES SHARE THEIR WORKPLACE In 2009, Jarden Consumer Solutions, headquartered in Boca Raton, partnered with SOS Florida to create a way for SOS kids to take part in national “Take Your Child to Work Day.” In 2010, that special one-day experience developed into an annual event that both organizations look forward to. For many families, the national day is a chance for parents to share a part of their lives their children rarely see and to become closer. For a foster child with no parents, it’s an experience that is usually lost forever. When the SOS boys and girls were invited to share the day at Jarden in 2009, the experiment was a chance for employees to spend time with the kids their company supports as well as their own children. Since then, the program has grown. The annual event is more than a tour of the office and sitting at a desk all day. Employees and guests have the chance to let loose and have some fun. Finding inspiration in Jarden’s international product lines, such as Mr. Coffee, Sunbeam and Oster, participants spend the day developing new off-the-wall products, packaging and even commercials for wacky items you’ll never see in the stores. The day is more than sharing. It’s about building relationships, finding a creative spark, and discovering that working in the real world can be challenging and rewarding.

Jarden VP of Community Relations and Communications Rocki Rockingham with mentee and SOS Teen Kandice Hart leads the way for employees and kids during Take Your Child to Work Day.


Employee teamwork

sHARING TIME

2010 was a remarkable year for corporate teamwork. New companies like Broadspire and Twin Star and continuing partners like NCCI, BlueGreen, UnitedHealth, and the Ritz-Carlton all inspired employees to share their time with our boys and girls. Allowing employees to dedicate a few hours to work together to do good, enhanced their teamwork and energized employees.

Mentoring is perhaps the deepest and most meaningful way to volunteer to help a child. Each relationship is unique. Each experience is life changing for both the child and their mentor.

Each office brought its own unique excitement to projects that included painting, cleaning and decorating homes; workplace drives for household good, personal toiletries, toys and school supplies; and even activities with our children like a baseball game or barbecues. Pictured: NCCI volunteers returned for their annual village project in 2010.

“Everytime I am with her, I make sure she knows that no matter what, I am there. Everytime I leave her, we find a positive lesson together to stay hopeful. All those things I struggled with in my childhood, I can help her with - help create a different story for her. I simply can’t imagine my life without her anymore.” - Lisa Guarini on mentoring an SOS Child

Our most dedicated friends are part of the club Investment in our children is at the core of membership in the SOS Village Circle Club. Membership is made up of our most devoted supporters who believe in our mission and want to help develop young children into happy, successful and productive adults. Many of these friends and neighbors renew their membership each year by repeating or increasing their support to the boys and girls because they know they can make a difference. In the past two years, the 13 SOS teens who graduated from high school have all gone on to college or technical school. These young people are well on their way to becoming mature, productive adults who will shape tomorrow’s world. They are following the example set by 21-year-old SOS Alumnus Freddie who is now providing a home for his fouryear-old nephew. Learning to make good choices and how to apply the valuable life skills he learned at SOS make it possible for Freddie to provide a secure, responsible future for himself and his nephew. Yes, the investment made by members of the Village Circle Club does indeed reap tangible rewards. From the activities of childhood to life skills for the future, every new discovery and lesson learned is possible with your support. Village Circle Club Members provide the means for us to fulfill our promise of “Healing, Hope and Home for Every Child.” New members are welcome to join each year by simply making monthly or quarterly contributions that add up to at least $500 for the year, or a one-time annual contribution of at least $500.
