BBBS has dire need for mentors in Yavapai County
Special to the Tribune

With more than 200 boys and girls on the Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters waiting list, only 48 volunteers have signed up to be a Big Brother, Big Sister, Couple or Family Match.

"These boys and girls who are being raised by one parent or neither, and who have so much to deal with, are able to overcome their disadvantages and achieve their potential. But they need the help of a caring volunteer, a 'Big,'" said Kathleen Murphy, YBBBS president and CEO.

There are other ways to help the organization.

Remember Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters for your Working Poor Arizona Tax Credit donation. These donations help cover the cost of home visits and interviews for the volunteers and children, and provide for the ongoing support each Big and Little receive from a professional case manager.
