For many children seeking a Big Brother or Big Sister here in Santa Cruz, their present circumstances are challenging. Nearly 90% are living with just one parent in the home, and 84% are living in poverty.

These children are at risk. Nationally, they comprise 90% of runaway and homeless youth; 71% of high school drop-outs; and 70% of imprisoned minors.

Donations of any amount are appreciated

With the support and friendship of caring mentors, children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Santa Cruz County are not limited by their circumstances. They are far more likely to stay in school, away from drugs, and out of trouble. You can make a difference and have an impact on the direction of a child’s life.

Please generously support our Make A Match campaign. One caring mentor can change the course of a child’s future. We invite you to Make A Match
