Your support makes a difference

Since 1982, our professional staff at Big Brothers Big sisters of Northeast Alabama have matched local children who are facing adversity with safe, positive mentors in one to one mentoring relationships. The proven results of these wonderful friendships are:

  • Improved grades and behavior
  • Decreased use of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs
  • Increased self esteem, confidence, and caring about others.

Mentors and staff are in a unique position to detect neglect and abuse of children; influence parents; bring awareness to community leaders of the needs of children of adversity. These children grow up to be productive adults.

We serve Calhoun, Cherokee, DeKalb, Etowah, and Talladega Counties.


Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.


All children achieve success in life.

We help children grow and achieve their goals WITH YOUR HELP. If you cannot volunteer to be a Big Brother or Sister, you can make a contribution which will help secure our programs for our youth.
