  • Big Impacts: Helping Futures Take Flight
  • It’s been five years since Big Sister Pamela and Little Sister Skyler have been matched through the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida program. Skyler comes from a family that has struggled financially and her family knew that Skyler needed a positive female to look up to. Soon after Skyler’s enrollment, her grandmother passed away, and at this point Skyler really needed someone who could shed some positive light in her life. Fortunately, Big Sister Pamela was the perfect match for Skyler.

  • Big Impacts: Years of Guidance, Graduation & Great Futures
  • There are many indicators to determine if a match is successful. Are the Big and Little comfortable around each other? Are they both getting something positive out of the match? Do they enjoy their time together and want to continue to grow their relationship? On September 25, 2006, LaBruce first met his Big Brother Grant. Almost nine years later, Grant has been privileged in watching his Little Brother walk across the stage at his high school graduation to accept his diploma, with honors. “I have been able to watch LaBruce grow up. In fact, I have known him longer than I have known my wife. He brings me joy and makes me a better person.”
