  • Happy New Year - Looking Back, Moving Forward
  • Happy New Year! As we start 2018, I want to say thank you for your support and generosity. You have helped us provide the gift of mentorship to disadvantaged children from all over the Bay Area. We are truly grateful. I would also like to update you personally with some exciting news about the work that your generosity has made possible this past year. Here are a few key highlights of what we accomplished together in 2017.
  • Juanita’s Story
  • Juanita got a surprise call from Child Protective Services about her niece and two nephews, who had showed up to school hungry and dirty. She learned that the day before, their drug-addicted mother had abandoned her children Michael (age 10), Nathan (age 7), and Leilah (age 2) at a hotel. These children had yet to see a day in their life with any stability.
  • Holiday Party Fun!
  • It’s heart-warming to see our Bigs and Littles together, with each year marked by holiday festivities. Matches like Big Brother Brandon and Little Brother Devin who’ve been attending the Holiday Party for the past five years illustrate the power of mentorship and the joy that comes from this special bond, growing and strengthening over time.
  • 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. Now a unified organization serving children from nine counties in the Greater Bay Area -- Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Santa Clara, San Francisco, San Mateo, Solano, and Sonoma -- our combined programs and staff will centralize key functions and operations, headquartered in San Francisco.
