We need YOU!
    
Friendship is a powerful thing!  It's fun; most anyone can be a friend; and it's important.  Experiencing fun activities together and forming a trusting bond with a child can have a powerful and positive impact on the child.     We've all had someone in our lives -- other than a parent -- who made a difference to us.  This is what you can do for a child in our program.  It's really pretty simple...it's a matter of making yourself available on a consistent basis; it's having fun with a Little Brother or Little Sister; it's listening to them talk about whatever is going on in their lives; it's a series of small, teachable moments that -- in the end -- make a BIG diffference.  Just a "Little Time = Big Rewards" with YOUR help!
