Becoming a Big Brother or a Big Sister takes only a few hours a month, and yet has such a big impact on the child, the family and on YOU! If you are looking to contribute in a significant way to someone’s life now and empower them to create a better future, and enjoy the rewards of knowing you are supporting a child and family, consider becoming a Big now.
Your support is needed now, more than ever! 80% of our Littles come from low-income households, 60% from single parent families and 30% of our Littles are People of Color who have been disproportionately affected by the economic, health and social impact of this pandemic. After surveying our families, we discovered that over 50% of the parents/guardians of our Littles either lost their job, were laid off or had a reduction in hours. 40% of our families experienced food insecurity and 45% needed help paying utilities. BBBSCO Staff took immediate action to assist the families of our Littles with basic needs and resources during this time of crisis.
