Formally constituted in 1968, Big Sisters of Greater Racine is an independent, voluntary organization supported by member’s dues and by gifts from individuals, organizations and churches.
Big Sisters are women 18 and older who spend time on a regular basis with their Little Sister participating in various activities or simply “hanging out.” They are not substitute mothers, but are adult friends. They provide friendship, guidance and encouragement to a young girl who could benefit from this type of one-on-one relationship.
