Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters:

Mission:
At JBBBS, we believe that everyone deserves to have someone in their life who wants to spend time with them and believes in them – call it a friend or a mentor. In the spirit of strengthening one another, we seek to support and empower individuals and families to engage, to participate actively in the life of their communities, to live inspired and to inspire others. Through a holistic approach to supporting clients and families, we provide mentorship to children, teens and adults as well as financial support, holiday programming and referrals to other social service agencies.

For this reason, we actively engage and serve children and adults across religion, race, gender, sexual identity and orientation, and ability.
