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 is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a donor-supported volunteer organization that places caring adults in the lives of children through 1-to-1 mentoring relationships. By the positive impact of these friendships, children with a Big Brother or Big Sister are more likely to graduate from high school and are less likely to begin using drugs, begin using alcohol or engage in negative conflict.
I would love to have the opportunity, To help and listen to a children who feels like they have no one to talk to. When I was younger know one took the time to actually talk to me about my life and what was actually going on. I feel like I could help someone who feels the same way I did when I was younger. I feel like its my purpose to listen, help and learn from others. I have never volunteered before but I feel like this is the best way to start. I believe i can truly help this organization in so many ways Thank you for you for your time... Jailynn Warren
