In addition to our office in Fayette County, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass extends throughout Central Kentucky, with offices in Boyle, Madison, and Montgomery counties. We also serve children in Garrard, Lincoln, Mercer, Clark, and Bourbon counties.
Since 1957, our Fayette County office has provided professionally supported mentoring relationships to countless children and their adult mentors. In addition to School and Community-Based programming, Fayette County was also the first of all of our counties to take on our Bigs in Blue program. In 2017, we also began working with the Lexington Fayette County Urban Government through a program called City Mentors. These partnerships with pillars of the Lexington community and our many generous sponsors help us work toward serving more children all across Central Kentucky.
Garrard, Boyle, Lincoln, & Mercer Counties
This office is unique to the agency because it is the only region funded by Heart of Kentucky United Way (HKUW). Because of this region's special relationship with HKUW, the program in our area facilitates the community-based mentoring program and will soon be launching a new program based off of our site-based mentoring within our school systems. The Danville community is very supportive of our programs. The Danville community is very supportive of our program, and participating in Bowl for Kids' Sake every year is a tradition for most business in our little town. In Danville, we are small but mighty!
Madison & Clark Counties
BBBS of Clark and Madison Counties has served this region with our Community Based Programs. Our community based program allows for the adult mentors (BIGS) to spend time with our children (LITTLES) for approximately one hour per week. These activities allow for matches to 'hang out' and share in once lifetime adventures in the community.
