Success Stories

Troy and Zach
For Mary Williamson, the summer months are little easier than most. Her boss, Troy Romero , at Turf Grass Farms, Inc. has an open door policy when it comes to Mary's son Zach. Romero grew up in a single parent household and knows the importance of finding time for his family. He loves when Zach accompanies his mother to the office. This is in part due to the fact that Troy is Zach's Big Brother.
Jo and Izabella
A story about a beautiful relationship that resulted from a local match in SWLA that will be shared nationally through the Big Brothers Big Sisters corporate office!

Programs Offered

Foster Grandparent Program
The Foster Grandparent Program was developed in 1965 as a cooperative effort between the Office of Economic Opportunity and the Department of Health Education and Welfare (HEW) in Washington, D.C. The Foster Grandparent Program moved to the Lake Area in the fall of 1999. Its purpose is to enable low-income senior citizens to supplement their income in a meaningful way by providing volunteer service to special-needs children.
High-School Mentoring Program
The High School Mentoring program is in schools throughout Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Jeff Davis and Vernon parishes. The program matches high school Sophomore and Juniors with elementary students to assist them with homework, engage them in activities to improve listening skills, help teach the importance of delaying gratification, improving relationships with others as well as helping to build the child's self-esteem and confidence. Beginning a new school year can be a fun and exciting time in a child's life, but for some children it can be a very trying time. Having a mentor visiting during the school day can make a big impact. As a lunch buddy, our Bigs engage with our Littles helping them with school work, playing games or just simply listening.
