The Bair foundation is committed to child and family services across nine states. Our programs range from foster care and adoption services (including children with special and therapeutic needs), to clinical and behavioral health aids and independent living transitions.

The Bair foundation is committed to child and family services across nine states. Our programs range from foster care and adoption services (including children with special and therapeutic needs), to clinical and behavioral health aids and independent living transitions.

When a child comes into The Bair Foundation’s care, the state allots 30 days to gather all necessary paperwork, such as birth certificates, and hospital and judicial records. Since social case workers are quite often overloaded, the foundation is seeking volunteers who are willing to help gather documents for our Dallas, TX location. This would aid Bair’s mission to serve as many needy children as possible!

There is no minimum hour requirement. All we ask is that volunteers be 18 years of age or older and have access to their own transportation. (Destinations will include hospitals and courthouses.) Prior to donating their time, all volunteers will be trained to ensure comfort with the tasks assigned, as this work involves sensitive information and privacy requirements.

Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) enriches, encourages, and empowers children to reach their highest potential through safe, positive mentoring relationships. Independent research demonstrates that the agency’s model of one-to-one relationships has a direct and measurable impact on the children served. This proven success in creating safe, positive friendships translates into more confident children, healthier families, and stronger communities. Children are enrolled in the program from ages 7-14 and can continue in the program until high school graduation. Big Brothers and Big Sisters come from a variety of backgrounds and range in age from high school seniors to senior citizens; Bigs are asked to commit one year to be matched with a child.

For some volunteer opportunities a criminal background check, driving record check, interview, and/or training may be required. Some duties may be limited to students with an undergraduate degree in a particular subject matter. Requirements will vary by opportunities available and BBBS reserves the right to change or update these requirements at any time.
