THE NEED

BBBS primarily serves children from one-parent/grandparent households. Thirty three percent of children in our community live with a single parent.  Twelve percent live with a grandparent or other adult.  This represents nearly fifty percent of the children in our community.  Our goal is to provide children who lack positive and consistent adult influences with one to help build their self-esteem, academic performance and decision-making. 

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

• Our average match length is 3 years

• Forty percent of our matches involve young adults in middle and/or high school
