About BBBS CM/MW CARES
Often during evaluations and match-support meetings, BBBS CM/MW staff become aware of situations in which a child or their family need more services than we can provide. Because of this, we started a new initiative called BBBS CARES (Creating Access to Resources and Emergency Support). Through the CARES initiative, we can connect our families with other supportive agencies that provide critical items needed by families, such as food, clothing, and similar items. One of these agencies is Cradles to Crayons, which provides backpacks, school supplies, and clothing for all kids, even if they are not participants in our program. We can connect moms who need new clothes for a job with the Dress for Success organization. By providing these types of services to the families engaged with Big Brothers Big Sisters, we will decrease the stresses that children may experience at home.
We are seeking an intern that will enhance and expand our BBBS CARES initiative through thoughtful planning and executing of new partnerships, events and activities.
