6 Innovative Programs


Our goal is to serve an estimated 600 children per year by 2025, which is a 53% increase. Our current facility is already bursting
at the seams with all of the activities it takes to deliver our high-quality mentoring programs. It is built for 12 and is currently housing 16 staff and 3 interns.

Our plans include remodeling the existing structure and building a 900 square feet addition. The cost of the building project is an estimated $1.9 MILLION, which consists of the building, furnishings and campaign costs.

what our matches say.

“I woke up this morning and remembered I get to see you today, that’s when I knew it was going to be a good day.” 


“I became a Big because my Mom was a Big Sister when she was my age and still plays a big role in her LS’ life to this day. My LS has taught me how to look at the little things in life, I love spending time with my her! One of the most memorable moments I had with her was at her birthday party, I felt like I was part of her family. I love being around them, they make me feel welcomed!” 


“BBBS of Chattanooga allows for my family to give unconditional love and support to our little, while our little adds back to us smiles, laughs, and joy. Our daughter looks forward to going to see our little brother, to play and hang out. We play games as a family and get to just enjoy one another.  Our little is amazing, his family is amazing and our family has now grown.”

Build even more and become a mentor.

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister is one of the most enjoyable things you’ll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve. And the best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your Little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.
