  • Grateful for all YOU do for Littles Like Savannah
  • At this month’s Evening of Inspiration Gala, Little Sister Savannah brought tears to our eyes as she thanked everyone for supporting the program that changed her life. When you support our agency you support hundreds of children like Savannah. Watch this video and you’ll be deeply moved by her story too.
  • Exciting News from Big Brothers Big Sisters!
  • We are thrilled to announce that our Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area community is expanding, as we have officially merged with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the North Bay.

  • Patty is an Enrollment and Match Specialist (EMS) in the Milpitas office. She’s been with the agency for 11 years and her heart-felt dedication shines through in this story.
  • Ammarah’s Little Talks for Big Impact
  • “I couldn’t play with you because you know too much” Little Sister, Hailey, confessed to her Big Sister, Courtney, about a new a game she had just learned. From this one game, Hailey was immediately impressed by Courtney’s savvy and won over by her playful spirit. In that moment Courtney realized all she had to do was start a simple friendship. What she didn’t yet know was how it would eventually develop into a substantial and meaningful relationship.
  • South Bay Little: Ready For A Big Change
