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, 2008, is $1,124,905. 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.


Tending Our Garden Together Dear Friends of Our Children, Children generally go into foster care as a last resort: when maltreatment or neglect at home is extreme and unremitting. At SOS, we provide a place where foster children come to live and grow with the nurturing and stability every child deserves. Eleven-year-old Olivia settled in and we tended to her needs. She shared that it was the first time she had ever slept on a new set of sheets. Three sisters—Casey, Michelle and Kayla— sprouted roots after being here for one year and increased their grade point averages from 1.5 to over 3.0. Kendra, age 15, blossomed as she was elected President of our Teen Council and she honed her leadership skills. In December, ChildNet called to ask if we could provide a home for five brothers and sisters so they could be together for the holidays. Without hesitation, we converted an office building into a new SOS home. We now have 12 homes and at the end of the year reached 75 children, our highest census ever! As you read about 2008 in review, we hope you will allow your mind to wander down our street and realize how your support and efforts have built an amazing home and family that puts smiles on the faces of our children and dreams in their hearts and minds. It takes a village to raise a child, but it takes a community to create a village. Thank you for being a part of our village and helping SOS and our boys and girls grow. On behalf of our kids,

2008 at the Village • Thirty-four new children came home to SOS • Seven children turned 18, four remain at SOS while they are finishing high school • Sixteen children were reunited with their parents • Three children went to preadoptive homes

Planting Seeds In 2008, SOS was home to 93 children, ages 2 to 19.

Family

For foster children, family can be a vague idea or dream. For those children who come home to SOS, it is reality. Each day, we are blessed to witness the joy and love of family in so many forms.

Brothers and Sisters

Home at SOS

SOS is a place of reunion for brothers and sisters in foster care. Thanks to our programs and homes, siblings have the opportunity to live and grow up together at the Village.

At the beginning of 2008, the Village had 11 homes for children along our cul-de-sac, caring for an average of 65 boys and girls. Some homes were devoted to a single group of brothers and sisters. Others were composed of girls or boys of similar age. Regardless of the makeup, each is a family home.

In October, like so many brothers and sisters before them, we welcomed the Rios family: Jackie, 7; Jenny, 8; Julie, 10; Katie, 2; and Paulo, 5. The girls first visited SOS in the summer, when they were in search of a home that would allow them to live together and stop moving from place to place. When one of our homes opened up, it was the perfect opportunity to welcome them. Not long after, we were once again thrilled with news that their little brother Paulo would be arriving with them. When they arrived, the kids were so excited to be together that they went from house to house delivering a very special thank you to everyone in the Village who helped get their new home ready.

Our Mission

With a growing need for foster homes, and siblings on a waiting list to share our home and family, SOS celebrated the opening of our 12th home in December 2008. Converting one of the three homes used for staff offices to a home for children allowed SOS to welcome a new family to the Village just in time for the holidays. The additional home raised our census to 75 children, our largest ever.

Care and Nurturing

It truly takes a Village to raise a child. Our Village family is blessed to be made up of so many wonderful staff, volunteers, friends and donors who provide our children with the care, tools and experiences they need to grow up to be successful and productive adults.

Thanks to your support... •

We raised $1.65 million to provide mental health and behavior therapy, tutoring, and life skills classes for our all of our children.

The Teen Council helped with our first Basketball Tournament and planned the first SOS Garage Sale.

All of our kids went to summer camp.

Thirty of our children participated in City of Coconut Creek Cheerleading and/or Football in the fall.

All of our kids were prepared for school on the first day and brought home school pictures full of smiles.

The holidays of each season were festive... Valentine’s Day cookies were baked, Easter baskets were handed out; Halloween costumes were put together; more than 150 of our kids, alumni, and staff celebrated Thanksgiving dinner together; and homes were lit up, gifts torn open, and a traditional holiday meal was served in each home thanks to the generosity of our friends and neighbors.

We re-landscaped our homes and updated our kitchens and bathrooms.

Our kids went on class trips, to the theater and sports events.

In Full Bloom Becoming An Adult

Family and home don’t end just because a child turns 18. While one of our goals at SOS is to teach our children to grow into responsible adults who can make better decisions and succeed in life, that does not mean that once a child leaves the Village they are forever on their own. In 2008, there were 69 young adults living in our community who once called SOS home. Of these, 52 were part of our After Care Program. Made possible by grants and donations, the program provides a Coordinator who helps these young adults plan their future, find places to live, enroll in school, apply for jobs, and even start businesses.

• Twenty-three of our young adults were enrolled in school full time, eight in college • Four were working full time • Ten were in school and working

Pursuing Hopes & Dreams Wanda, age 26

Gloria, age 23

Wanda and her three younger sisters were the first children to arrive at the Village when our doors opened in 1993. She lived at SOS for nine years, until she graduated and headed for college.

Gloria lived at SOS for seven years and is still an active member of our family. Today she is a single mother of two children, ages one and two.

With the care and support of her SOS family, she set the bar high for the boys and girls who were to follow. Today, Wanda is a middle school teacher in Deerfield Beach, she is married with three children of her own, is studying for her masters degree and has her own business. “I can nurture my little girls today because I was nurtured at SOS.”

Gloria enjoys spending time with kids and helping others. Thanks to After Care, she is gaining experience in her first full-time job with WorkForce One. She is so excited about working, knowing that she is gaining the skills and experience that will make her marketable in the workforce. She now believes all things are possible and she can make a good life for her kids.


Rosanna, age 19 Born to two deaf parents who emigrated from the Dominican Republic, Rosanna and her brothers grew up in shelters and foster care. After settling into the Village, where she lived for three years, she was given the opportunity she had long ago dreamed of—graduating high school and earning a doctoral degree. Rosanna graduated high school and started classes at Broward College in 2008, yet she hasn’t lost sight of her family. While juggling her class schedule, she helps take care of her brothers and parents and has also found time to help found Empowering Youth for Positive Change, an advocacy group that helps foster children.

Tavares, age 27 Tavares and his six younger brothers arrived at SOS not long after we opened our doors. In fact, our two-story home was built to accommodate their family. The brothers lived together at SOS for eight years before Tavares, at 18, transitioned out. His youngest brother is now 18, but will continue to live at SOS until he graduates high school next year. With guidance and support from our After Care program, Tavares became an entrepreneur. He opened his own car detailing service and today is looking forward to expanding his services. “The support of SOS, who stepped up, believed in me and supported my dream, put me on the road to success.”

Andrew, age 23 Andrew arrived at SOS with his younger siblings Erice and LeAnn when he was 15 years old. He called SOS home for the next three years, until he finished high school at age 18. Living at the Village was an adjustment. Making new friends and learning to live with other boys was a challenge. Having a home surrounded by green grass and trees was something he wasn’t used to. But by the time he left SOS, the boys in his house were like brothers to him and the opportunities provided by the Village helped him prepare for life and find his place in the world. Today Andrew is living on his own in Fort Lauderdale. He recently earned a certificate in boat and yacht repair and is eager to follow his interests and dreams by continuing to study music. Yet he doesn’t forget what he has been through or the lessons learned—lessons he continues to share every time he comes home to visit. Living at SOS gave him a break and showed him the “right way” to build his future.

What does the future hold for our kids... • 83% of our children have graduated high school. The national average is 50% for foster children and 84% for non-foster children. • 47% of our alumni went on to college or trade school. The national average for foster children is 15% and for nonfoster children is 32%. • 71% of our alumni were enrolled in school or employed full-time last year. • 100% of our alumni had a home.

Fantastic outcomes accomplished with your time and support!

Creating a Legacy Our Children’s Legacy When Melina Paul left SOS in the Summer of 2008, she left behind a beautiful legacy for all of the future SOS children. As part of an internship with Volunteer Broward, Melina worked with SOS Social Services Manager Adrienne Pollichemi, Facilities Manager Carlos Tejeda, and our children to create the SOS Legacy Wall. The project, which she coordinated, brought together our talented young artists to create a mural of Picasso’s Petite Fleurs on a blank wall in our Social Services building. Then, awakening the creativity and excitement of all our kids, Melina helped each child place their unique handprint and name on our wall. Together they branded our Village as their own, a home and family that they would always be a part of. The compelling idea grew and our alumni were soon coming home to add their handprints to the wall. Today there are over 70 handprints on our wall, a reminder that our family is forever.

2008 saw the dedication of another very special legacy wall at SOS, our Village Circle Wall of Honor. Each year at our President’s Reception, SOS dedicates a plaque with the names of Village Circle members; individuals, groups, and friends who become a part of our family through their leadership giving. This year, the wall was officially dedicated to the Club Managers Association of America, Florida Chapter, Seminole Region, who over the past six years has contributed over $785,000 to help our children. Each year the Club Managers host a golf tournament to help raise money for their favorite local charities. They sponsor our gala, deliver holiday gifts, and provide wonderful, fun-filled events and activities for our boys and girls.


New Leadership

In December 2008, our Village bid a very fond farewell to Chief Executive Officer Margie Bruszer when she retired and moved to Texas to be closer to her family. For close to a decade our children, staff, volunteers, and friends were kept safely in her compassionate and capable hands. With her help, our Village grew and helped raise more than 250 children. At the same time, Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey Zirulnick took over as our new CEO. Even before taking the helm, Jeff was already hard at work moving our Village forward: working with staff and Board to develop a new strategic plan, staff recognition programs, training programs and establishing the Teen Council for the Village youth.

The transition was already complete as we rang in 2009, and we look forward to continuing to grow and provide our foster children with “A Place To Call Home.”

A New Look... A New Promise

In 2008, SOS-Kinderdorf International, our parent organization, released a new logo and look. For our international home, the new brand is symbolic of the bond that binds and holds together the more than 450 Villages in 133 countries. While each Village, like ours, is unique to local customs and nationalities, together we have the same vision—a world where every child grows up in a family: loved, respected and protected. At the same time, SOS Florida was hard at work studying our community and developing our own unique message. With the help of volunteers from the Executive Service Corps of Broward County, a team of staff, board members and volunteers worked to create a simple message, a new marketing package and a plan to reach out into the community for new friends. After all... “It takes a Village to raise a child.” Yesterday...

SOS Children’s Villages - Florida

Still to come in 2009 • Village Voice is a new corps of SOS Volunteers that will act as ambassadors for our children while speaking to local groups and assisting with community events and activities. Coming Summer 2009. • SOS Yes! will bring together motivated, energetic young adults for social and networking events to make a difference in the lives of our children.
