Profile

About Us

Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters (KSBBBS) matches children facing adversity with caring, adult mentors. We believe that all children - regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or family background - can achieve success in life, especially with the guidance and support of a caring adult mentor. These one-to-one professionally-supported friendships last a minimum of one year. However, the effects of these friendships last a lifetime. 

 

Our Youth

The children (Littles) we serve are 5 to 17 years old and face various forms of adversity. With an active adult role model, they will have the support and assistance to overcome these barriers and break destructive cycles.

 

85% of Littles come from single parent homes

80% of Littles live at or below the poverty level

65% of Littles come from households facing alcohol or drug addiction

40% of Littles have witnessed or experienced domestic violence

30% of Littles have or have had an incarcerated parent

60% of Littles waiting for a Big in Riley and surrounding counties are boys.
