Review for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties, Inc., West Palm Beach, FL, USA
When I retired from my job I had a lot more time on my hands, and I had heard a lot of positive comments about BBBS, so I applied to be a 'big' with the BBBS of Palm Beach & Martin Counties. It has been an extraordinarily wonderful adventure, both for myself and for my 'little', Sidian. The staff worked closely with me to find a match (we both love reading, nature and bike riding) and were always there to support us both. This was very important to me as I had never been a parent. They answered questions, provided reading suggestions, ensured we were invited to events that we were both interested in, etc. The BBBS staff check in with me, Sidian and her mother regularly to ensure everything is going well and four years on, I know Sidian will always be part of my life. BBBS has a tireless group of dedicated, extremely hard working staff that make me very proud to be associated with them and has changed my life, and Sidian's, forever. I am now happy to be volunteering on the Board and involved with fund raising for events.
