CARES Program

Our CARES (Creating Access to Resources, Events, and Support) Program was developed for all youth enrolled in our programs as a way to address needs and provide benefits that go beyond mentoring.

This program is made possible through the generosity of community members and businesses that reach out to support our families both in times of need and all year round. Through community partnerships, our CARES Program also offers our Bigs, Littles, and children waiting to be matched with opportunities to enjoy experiences like fishing trips, tickets to sporting events, theater, and concerts, holiday parties, back to school events, kayaking, cooking workshops, yoga classes, and more.



Through this initiative, BBBS staff connects our families with resources and donations such as:

  • clothing and shoes
  • event tickets
  • bicycles
  • match activities
  • career readiness
  • holiday gifts
  • parent engagement
  • school supplies
  • camp scholarships
  • groceries
