History

April 1, 2010

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mitchell Area opened to serve kids in the Mitchell community.

 

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mitchell Area was considered a satellite of the Sioux Falls Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Started the Mentor Mom program

July 1, 2015

Left the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization and became Big Friend Little Friend of the Mitchell Area. 

The transition to Big Friend Little Friend of the Mitchell Area gave the Board of Directors more decision-making power. The board members are all invested in helping BFLF thrive in the Mitchell community and are able to strategically find ways to help BFLF thrive because they are all members of the Mitchell community themselves. Operating as an independent non-profit organization also ensured that all of the money received through donations would stay in the Mitchell community and be used to help area kids.
