Big Brothers Big Sisters of Helena and Great Falls

is facing potential closure.

Today, we find ourselves in a position we hoped would never come. State and federal funding for our organization has been eliminated through a series of unanticipated budget cuts totally $115,000. We’ve had to cut our high school based programs, cut staff positions, and curtail new matches.  But it won’t be enough.  Yes, this is a crisis for the hundreds of children served in Helena, Great Falls and Boulder and a tremendous loss to our communities.

 Study after study shows the BBBS mentoring program really works.  Kids with mentors have higher graduation rates, higher self-esteem, avoid alcohol and drug use, and live a more happy and productive life.  It costs $1250 per year for one match.  If you can afford $500, $300, $150 or $25, it will make a difference!  Your dollars will stay in your community – Helena or Great Falls.  For 50 yrs. we have been supported by generous contributions from private donors, businesses and corporations we need your help more than ever.
