A Message from our Director

Hello Friends!

Do you remember as a kid, when school started in the fall, the holiday breaks seemed so far away? And now, it feels like it all just runs together without any type of waiting period. 


What was most important then is still what is most important now. Having time to hang with people who are important to us, celebrating holidays, carrying on traditions, and or course, the food! 


Unfortunately for many, the holiday season is a time of heightened stress and anxiety. Fear and disappointment, We are so grateful for our Bigs who are there to support their Littles and show that the best presents that last a lifetime are ... to be real ... to be interested ... to be complimentary ... to be curious ... to be present. Scientists have proven that these actions change  a child's brain chemistry, today and for the rest of their lives.


In our demanding world, we have to be just as intentional about how we commit our time and energies as we are about how we commit our financial resources. Thank you for intentionally, and with a heart for kids, choosing to share your time and/or resources with our kids!


Jackie Johnson

Executive Director
