Mission Statement

The mission of Big Friends Little Friends - a program of Family Service, Inc. (formerly Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater lawrence) is to make a positive difference in the lives of children and youth. We are a volunteer organization that provides support, guidance, and friendship to children by matching youngsters to adult role models. We match each child we serve with a mentor who believes in them. We offer our "Big's" the opportunity to experience the magic that comes with exposing a child to new perspectives and possibilities.


Bigs open doors and challenge young minds. Outings might be recreational, character building, or educational. A Big could provide the first opportunity for a child to explore a museum, hike a mountain, or join a sports team. The Big may be the only adult in the child's life who can consistently devote time to just hanging out, one-on-one. The most common outings are as simple as walking in the park, baking a cake, or renting a movie. Big Friends have the opportunity to be a true friend to a child in need.
