SOS Children’s Villages Florida (SOS) is a foster care neighborhood in Coconut Creek, which provides up to 75 foster children with “A Place to Call Home.” The mission of SOS is to provide a nurturing environment that empowers children, youth, and families to achieve their potential. The village allows for siblings, who are typically separated while in foster care, to reunite and maintain their family connection. SOS also provides an 18+ After Care program to help young adults transition out of foster care after they turn 18 years of age. Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, SOS has had more than 600 children reside in the village and boasts a 100% high school graduation rate. Kramer has served on the Board of Directors for SOS Children’s Village Florida since 2012.
