BBBSHC provides children facing adversity with enduring, professionally supported one- to-one relationships that change their lives forever

When you look into the eyes of a child, what do you see?

Do you see hope? Confidence? Trust? Or do you see defeat? Fear? Anxiety?

Many times, the only difference lies in whether that child has had someone in their life that makes them feel loved, capable, and special. For nearly fifty years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampden County has been matching kids with exceptional volunteers who know how to make them feel special. And it works.

Compared to children who are not in our program, Little Brothers and Sisters are:

• 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs

• 52% less likely to skip school

• 37% less likely to skip a class

• 33% less likely to hit someone

• more confident of their performance in schoolwork

• get along better with their families

As important as these findings are, they only hint at the transformative potential that lies in forming even just one successful Big/Little match.

In each child lies the hope for a better world, and with your help, we will continue to unlock that potential for hundreds of kids throughout Hampden County every year.

Please consider making a donation in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Your contribution will be used where it is needed most: in recruiting, matching, and supporting Bigs and Littles throughout Hampden County.

With your help, we can show our Little Brothers and Sisters what it means to live a life filled with hope, confidence, and trust.

With thanks for your generous support,

David Beturne
Executive Director

PS: There are many boys and girls on our list, waiting to be matched. Your gift has the potential to change lives for the better, forever. Please give today.
