"His Big Brother makes him feel like he's not alone." -Parent of a Little Brother
We are kicking off an awareness and fundraising campaign to counter the challenges we are experiencing due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hear about it in the campaign in the interview by KNBN News Center 1 here.

Soon, we will share one Little's journey to #BetterTogether with his family. Stay tuned for Jaden's story of bravery and beating the odds.
Two thumbs up for this match! The screenshot of a text message from a Little Brother to his Big Brother says it all! The picture of them was at their initial match meeting last fall. They have enjoyed their time trying new things and spending time with the Big Brother's family.

For less than the cost of Netflix each month, you can help fight adversity and start securing a brighter future for the children in our community.
One-to-one mentoring is a simple, prevention-based strategy to help our youth become resilient despite the adversity they endure.
The need for one-to-one mentoring continues to rise and we need help supporting this growth.
The bonds shared between our matches are incredible! Hear it from Little Sister Zoey's mom...
"Zoey got matched with Dianna through Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Black Hills, Inc. back in January. They were both a little shy at first I think, but now it is like they have known each other forever! Dianna's, then boyfriend, Jeremy tagged along and grew a bond with Zoey too. They always do fun outings with Zoey and she always comes home and talks about them and how much fun she had. Dianna told me that they were getting married and having a small ceremony and would love for Zoey to be their flower girl. 6 short, crazy, covid months and their bond and relationship is so strong and was so surprised they wanted her to be a part of their big day. Look how gorgeous they are :) Congrats Dianna & Jeremy and thank you, BBBS, for creating this bond. ❤❤"
Congratulations, Dianna! We are so happy for you as you start this new chapter in life. Thank you for being a fantastic Big Sister to Zoey and including her in such a special time in your life.
The work we do is possible because of the individuals and businesses who link arms with us to help defend the potential of our Littles.
