Stepping Out on Saturdays (SOS)

Stepping Out on Saturdays (SOS) Manitoba …Friendships Start Here

SOS Manitoba provides day respite camps and social skills program for children 3 to 12 years of age with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). Priority is given to children who are in care or involved with child welfare.

The camps run one Saturday each month along with some follow-up skill development opportunities in four Manitoba locations, Winnipeg, Brandon, Thompson and Little Grand Rapids.

The S.O.S MB program is designed to offer children a fun and safe day. It will also provide an opportunity for participants to learn and practice social skills, self regulation, fine motor and large motor skills. Trained staff and a low child-to-staff ratio are the keys to a successful day. Through the intake process, a plan to support the unique needs of each child will be developed. Communication and support to families will be provided.
