BBBS NW Montana Board of Directors share why they believe in the mission and organization.
OUR WORK IS URGENT
Even in the best of times, our Littles face significantly more adversity than their peers. The young people we serve deserve to have a mentor standing in their corner, especially during this incredible moment of change and challenge.
Total annual household income less than $20,000
Live in single parent household
Worries a lot
Are lonely, sad and cry a lot
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.
