BENEFITING: BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF OCEAN COUNTY INC
If you care about kids, you'll care about what WE do. We provide children facing adversity with a caring adult to help guide them. Our kids - "Littles" - may have one parent, no parent, or a parent who is absent due to illness or incarceration. The professional staff of BBBSOC matches kids with a caring, well-screened volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister - the "Big" - and keeps close tabs on the match through the child, the parent or guardian and the Big. Our program PROVES the value of these relationships in helping our Littles improve or maintain their grades, their social skills and their outlooks on their futures. We have over 250 Littles on our waiting list for a mentor - we need more case managers. Won't you help us make more matches? Mentoring Works!
