General information on the USA


The work of SOS Children's Villages in the United States began in 1950, when a group was established in New York to put Hermann Gmeiner's idea into practice in that country. In 1963, "Friends of SOS Children's Villages International Inc." was officially registered. Despite its economic wealth, many children and young people are in need of protection and support in the United States of America. At present there are three SOS Children’s Villages in the USA.
