  • Mission:
  • Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is the nation’s oldest and most respected youth mentoring organization. In 1926 Jessie White, a juvenile probation officer in Dallas, was dismayed that the one common denominator shared by the juveniles she worked with was the lack of a trusted role model. With the realization that the future offered them nothing without guidance, she set in motion the local movement which would see the founding of a Big Brothers Big Sisters agency in Dallas. The community was quick to realize the need and took up the challenge the following year when 75 businessmen officially established the chapter.

    Over the subsequent decades the success of mentoring saw other communities seek programs in their cities, and programs were established in Fort Worth (1967), Arlington (1969), Denton (1975), Paris and Northeast Texas (1978) and Grayson County (1996). Three separate Big Brothers Big Sisters corporations in Dallas, Arlington and Fort Worth worked independently to serve North Texas.

    In 2003 the boards of each organization realized the benefits that would accrue from merging the disparate operations of each into one agency which could serve all of North Texas. That merger allowed significant economies of scale and efficiencies which have seen the number of area children mentored increase by 150 percent since 2002 while reducing the cost per match over the same period by 32 percent.

    BBBS of West Central Texas joined the North Texas organization in 2007. BBBS of Greater Houston joined the North Texas organization on June 1, 2010, creating the new Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star organization, which serves at-risk children in more than 100 Texas counties. By December 31, 2010 Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star had served 10,029 children in one-to-one mentoring relationships.

    This agency is the largest Big Brothers Big Sisters agency in the country, allowing for unrivaled operational efficiencies. A record of sustainable growth, lauded program outcomes and excellence in administration, coupled with a profoundly dedicated staff, has resulted in BBBS assuming a national leadership role.
