Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
OUR MISSION Helping children in need reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships with volunteers.
ABOUT USOur organizationserves the counties of Adams, Brown, Cass, Morgan and Schuyler. We love to help better the lives of children. We begin the process of putting some magic into the life of a child and yourself! Big Brothers Big Sisters is a youth-mentoring non-profit service organization that provides ongoing supportive services to children in need of a mentor. Volunteers are recruited from within the community and are fully-screened by our professional staff members. The interests, needs, and personalities of the children and volunteers are considered in making the best one-on-one (adult/child) match possible.
We have numerous fundraisers to help fund our agency and mentoring. Our agency has offices in Jacksonville and Quincy, Illinois that serve rural Illinois.
