Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Alabama opened its doors
in Limestone County in March, 2015. Our office is located in the Family
Resources Center on 406 South Jefferson Street in Athens, and we are open
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM, but we can be made
available at any time.
Building an organization from the ground up is never an easy
task, but the Limestone office has received a great deal of help from other
organizations in Athens. The Family Resources Center has generously provided
office space, and has been essential in connecting us to other local groups,
such as the Athens Chamber of Commerce.
The Athens Housing Authority has also been an important partner
in our efforts to serve children in Limestone County. They have referred
several children, and have given us greater local exposure by inviting us to
their community events.
Inroads have been made into Limestone County Schools, with
Creekside Elementary on target to be the first school for the site based
Calhoun Community College has also extended a helping hand,
with the Career Center pledging to help us recruit volunteers when the new
class term begins in the Fall.
Currently, there are three active matches in Limestone
County, and several children are waiting to be matched. If you are interested
in volunteering, or have a child and want them to be a part of the program,
please call the Athens office at 256-230-0880 or the Huntsville office at
