BBBSNWO A Little Bit Goes a Long Way

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Ohio matches kids with adults who serve as the positive role models and mentors they may be lacking.

Bigs teach, inspire and guide their Little.

Nothing does more long-term good than a Big/Little pairing. But right now, we could use some short-term help.

The negative emotional and financial impact COVID-19 has caused an incredible rise in match requests from families. Each one-to-one match costs about $1800 a year to support and monitor, and we cannot turn away a family in need.

While demand is skyrocketing, our funding has reached critical lows. The early pandemic’s then-unprecedented spikes forced us to use our reserve budgets to help kids in crisis.

We need your help, so our program can reach more of our children and positively impact their lives in this particularly tough time.

Everything you give will help achieve our mission and will go toward the cost of a match and its related costs right here in Northwestern Ohio.

Every dollar, any amount helps––an investment in us is an investment in them.

A Little Bit goes a long way to change a child’s life.
