Coronavirus Shelter in Place Resources

Rick Ohren News March 19, 2020

We at Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area remain committed to young people. In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic and shelter-in-place, we are still working to ensure that all youth achieve their full potential.

It is in that spirit that we provide the following resource links to parents, guardians, Bigs and the Bay Area at large so that young people may receive necessary food and educational support. Please check back frequently as we will add more resources as we receive them.

Please note that in light of the Bay Area shelter in place, picking up food is considered an essential activity. You will NOT be penalized for picking up food.
