About

Changing perspectives. Changing lives.

For more than 45 years, Heartland Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As an affiliate of the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, HBBBS makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in Lincoln, Nebraska. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.


Vision: All children achieve success in life.

Mission: provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Accountability: by partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors
  • Educational success
