History of BBBS of Central Arkansas
Five area churches began the Big Brothers Program in Little Rock to address the needs of young men living in the Highland Park area. These churches included Christ the King, Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Churches, Grace Presbyterian, St. Andrews, and Westover Hills Presbyterian. The first group of Big Brothers came from these churches. In 1968 Big Brothers of Pulaski County was incorporated and in 1972 became a full affiliate of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
In 1983 the organization began serving girls and became Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pulaski County. Growth in areas outside of Little Rock provided the opportunity to change the name to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas in 1998 and today serves all of Pulaski County, Benton, and Pine Bluff.
