About Match Makers
Children from single or non-parent homes are at the greatest risk of failing to reach their full potential. In the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area, this is true for over 40,000 children. Many of these children are also low-income. With fewer resources, their families struggle to make ends meet. This means the children enjoy less parental time and have fewer opportunities. Without support from people like you, they can fall victim to the many negative influences facing youth that lead to poor choices and failure.
You may not be able to become a Big Brother, Big Sister or Big Couple (or you may just want to do more). By becoming a Match Maker you can make a difference for local children living with adversity.
Children with a Big in their life are more likely to:
- Avoid drugs, alcohol and tobacco
- Have better relationships with their family and peers
- Have a positive view of their future
- Stay in school and graduate
Match Makers is Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midland’s monthly giving program. Match Maker gifts start new friendships every month and help all our match relationships stay strong and last long.
It's easy to set up a recurring gift of $25, $35, $50, or an amount of your choice with a debit or credit card. As a Match Maker, you'll receive a special welcome gift and monthly updates about the friendships you are creating.
Thank you for considering an investment in the children of our community and their futures.
