Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama (BBBSSA) is the largest one-to-one mentoring organization in south Alabama serving over 600 children and a minimum of 1,800 people annually across four counties. Their mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that are proven to change lives for the better, forever. BBBS enlists adult volunteers, “Bigs”, and matches them with “Littles”, who are children between the ages of 6-12 and would benefit the most from having a Big. The purpose of their services is to give children a caring and supportive adult mentor, who’s been thoroughly screened and trained, that will guide them to success, hold them accountable, and help them reach their full potential.
The Krewe of Kindness was formed in 2018 by the Zimlich family. Their daughter, Delaney, was born with Spina Bifida in 2006. At the time of this surprise diagnosis, thoughts of fear, isolation, and the unknown were ever present. They began to reach out to others in the community and found ways to adapt to this new life and wanted to find ways to give back and help others who needed a bit of kindness in their own lives. The mission of Krewe of Kindness is to provide assistance and support to families with special, non-medical needs to enable them to lead healthy and active lifestyles while emphasizing the importance of inclusion and acceptance within the community.
McKemie Place is the only overnight shelter for single, homeless women in all of Mobile, Washington and Baldwin Counties.
They are a safe haven for homeless women. They currently have a 69-bed capacity and provide a place for women to temporarily stay overnight. Through the gracious assistance of dedicated volunteers, who prepare, bring and serve evening meals, they are also able to serve dinner to their guests each evening.While some of McKemie's ladies are struggling to get back on their own two feet, some have jobs and go to work each day. But, all find comfort, friendship and spiritual support as they seek to rebound from the challenges life has thrown their way.
