TOGETHER, THE FUTURE LOOKS BIG.
Potential lives within every kid. Yet, more than 8.5 million kids are still in need of someone who will stand in their corner. So, we’ve sharpened our focus. Reimagined how we do things. Modernized how we look and talk.
We are the new Big Brothers Big Sisters. We are here to defend every kid’s potential. We are ready to build the biggest possible future, together.

Be a part of something BIG!
Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
All children achieve success in life.
By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
- Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
- Avoidance of risky behaviors
- Educational success
The impact of mentoring
We at Big Brothers Big Sisters have so much to be thankful for: our community, our Bigs and our DONORS! It takes a community to help kids feel safe and secure; helping them feel a part of our community and giving them a sense of belonging. You help give that sense of belonging when you support the mentoring programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
It costs $100 a month to maintain one match, so a monthly donation of any amount helps to support the work of mentoring in our community. And making donations through our PayPal account is easy and secure.
Quotes from the children we serve:
“My Big Brother really listens to me”
“I get to do stuff that I never did before”
“My Big just makes me feel better when I’m around him”
These are just a few of the comments our staff receive from our Little Brothers, Little Sisters and Little Pals.
60% of the children we serve come from single parent households, whether through divorce, a death of a parent or due to incarceration or abuse. It can be heartbreaking.
