Reviews for Big Brothers-Big Sisters Of The Bluegrass, Inc.

Rating: 3 stars  

I have worked with BBBS of the Bluegrass now for 3 years not only as a Big but also in the office in Danville. As a precaution against the mentioned issue happening again there are many checks and balances that have been put in place to insure that it does not occur again. It is a truly great charity and it is unfortunate that sometimes people take advantage of a good thing for their own gains.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

2008-2011

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase the staff. They are overwhelmed and overworked.
