Match Moments

“She lets me be myself and accepts me for who I am.  I had a background of knowing adults as not so nice people that can’t be trusted.  My Big Sister has helped me to understand that there are some really special and caring people that have made a difference in my life. I hope someday I can make a difference by being a big brother when I grow up.”
Little Brother
“I am simply amazed at what this program brings to the kiddos.  The students come to the office to meet their BIG and they are just glowing.  It is great to see such happiness for them as they need it!”
