Transcript Big sisters / little sisters are friends By Susan Socher MARCY AND SUZETTE Mfik -Mpj? Offset Printing And Other Related Services TWO CONVENIENT LOCATIONS TO SERVE YOU San Jacinto (near Sears/Main) West Gray (River Oaks Shopping Center) Ruby Sanders Manager, Kwik Kopy in the Bermac Bldg 4101 San Jacinto 526-6364 UNEMPLOYED? UNDEREMPLOYED? Read Marcy needed a special friend-someone to talk to, someone to have fun with, someone who would care. Suzette is that special friend, her Big Sister. Marcy and Suzette became ''sisters" through Big Sisters of Houston. Big Sisters, a program within this city's Big Brother Agency, was started here in Houston in January, 1971. Big Sisters focuses its attention on girls between the ages of 8 and 16, from single parent families. Through this program Little Sisters receive friendship and help from their Big Sisters- mature and responsible adults who volunteer to help these girls. Big Sisters was started in this country twenty years ago on the premise that growing up is a challenge to today's youth. Many women who feel the commitment to help young girls meet this challenge become Big Sisters, spending their time and energy building supportive friendships with their Little Sisters. These friendships help Little Sisters to gain self- confidence, to discover career goals, to become responsible adults. Most Big and Little Sisters build their relationship by spending time together each week. They share everyday things-walks in the park, picnics, shopping trips, gardening. And both Big and Little Sisters agree it takes time and effort to build the special one-to-one friendship that the program encourages. To help these relationships grow and develop the Big Sister staff provides professional supervision. This guidance is only available because of the support of the United Fund and from the Houston Association for Big Brothers. Because of their help Big Sisters has grown from 35 matches in 1971 to 165 assigned Little Sisters today. Seventy-six Little Sisters still need Big Sisters. Minority children make up the majority of these unassigned girls. Women interested in learning how they can help can contact Big Sisters, 1010 Banks, 529-4627.
