Big Brothers Big Sisters of Yellowstone County
Stand With Us
“Stand With Us” highlights the importance of bridging the gap between youth and much-needed mentors. Currently BBBSYC has over 100 Littles waiting for a Big, and the cost of recruitment for those Bigs continues to rise. “Stand With Us” allows us to recruit more effectively, targeting mentors throughout Yellowstone County

Volunteers of America Northern Rockies
Year End Campaign
Our year-end campaign raises critical funds for our Homeless Services and Ministry. Gifts received through the Homeless Services campaign provide critical housing services for our neighbors in need. Homeless Services includes emergency housing, rapid rehousing, homeless prevention and case management to assist with permanent housing, employment, life skills and other issues that our clients may be facing.
The other focus of our year-end campaign is VOA’s Ministry of Service. The organization has seen significant growth in the last year. It’s been a blessing to serve more of our neighbors in need. Unfortunately, the ministry has not been able to grow at the same pace. Our goal with the year-end campaign is to raise enough to cover an entire year of ministry services at the current cost of $767 a day before December 31.

In addition, the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch Foundation is in search of a secret Santa to make the Holidays possible for youth that reside at YBGR.
