OUR WORK IS URGENT

Our BBBS NW Montana kids are starved for consistency and normalcy in their lives. The pandemic and social unrest we are experiencing has brought myriad new challenges to families who already had more than their share. They deserve a mentor to help them navigate successfully into the future.

Our Littles face much greater exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) than the general population.

Social Isolation can both increase the likelihood of ACEs such as exposure to domestic violence, abuse and neglect AND compound the effects of trauma and adverse childhood experiences.

ACEs can have lasting negative effects on mental health and physical well-being throughout life.

Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring relationships protect against harmful effects of ACEs, and help young people with childhood trauma.

Once we are through this immediate crisis, we know that our children and families will continue to feel lasting, profound effects. Our work could not be more urgent.
