Success Stories

Angie and Kyla
Longevity is something that the case workers at Big Brothers Big Sisters strive for when matching a volunteer and a child. Caseworkers look for commonalities in both personality and interests. The volunteer and child are asked to commit to a minimum of one year, with the hopes that the relationship will continue for many years to come.
Troy and Zach
For Mary Williamson, the summer months are little easier than most. Her boss, Troy Romero , at Turf Grass Farms, Inc. has an open door policy when it comes to Mary's son Zach. Romero grew up in a single parent household and knows the importance of finding time for his family. He loves when Zach accompanies his mother to the office. This is in part due to the fact that Troy is Zach's Big Brother.

Programs Offered

Foster Grandparent Program
The Foster Grandparent Program was developed in 1965 as a cooperative effort between the Office of Economic Opportunity and the Department of Health Education and Welfare (HEW) in Washington, D.C. The Foster Grandparent Program moved to the Lake Area in the fall of 1999. Its purpose is to enable low-income senior citizens to supplement their income in a meaningful way by providing volunteer service to special-needs children.
Community Based Mentoring
This volunteer experience allows an adult to engage in numerous activities with a child at his or her leisure. Volunteers are asked to commit to one year of mentoring service with a child. Volunteers are encouraged to engage the child in an activity at least twice a month. These activities may be simply washing a car, popping pop-corn and watching a movie, or exploring the outdoors.
