THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN YAVAPAI BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS

Your financial support helps us provide our programs and services in Yavapai County, so we can develop more high school and college graduates, community leaders and entrepreneurs. Nearly 90% of every dollar you give goes directly to making and supporting Matches between Littles and Bigs. In 2021, our staff continued to offer the families we serve life-sustaining resources like food, shelter and medical care. We gave referrals and support to increase family stability (utilizing the YBBBS Resource Book); social media safety; counseling referrals; clothing; and job resources. We also delivered COVID support boxes to families with masks, sanitizer, basic food items, and more, donated by the Greater Yavapai Coalition. Donations were also successfully distributed over the holiday season, including over 200 gifts, holiday meals, bikes, and gift cards to our Littles and their families.
