One-to-One Big Brothers Big Sisters

One-to-One Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ithaca and Tompkins County is an affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and the Ithaca Youth Bureau. Our mission is to establish and nurture friendships between caring, responsible adults and children in need for such friendship. Through these friendships, One-to-One seeks to improve the lives of children and their families, enable volunteers to themselves benefit from their relationships with children and families, and bring community members together. Big Brothers and Big Sisters help children learn their own abilities and worth, teach them how to have friends and be friends, and provide them with opportunities for fun and discovery.

Open Doors

Family and Children’s Service of Ithaca announces Open Doors, a Runaway and Homeless Youth program for Tompkins County.  We provide services to youth up to age 21, and their families, who have run away or are at-risk of running away and are interested in reunifying with family.  We want to partner with the community, accepting referrals of young people and families dealing with these issues, and hope you will partner with us to provide support to families struggling to stay together
