Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Texas Panhandle announced Monday, May 23rd that they will be streamlining their operation for the foreseeable future.
Due to ongoing financial issues the organization says they will be closing their physical offices in Potter, Randall, Hansford and Ochiltree Counties.
The agency does not charge fees to participants and instead relies on grants, fundraisers and community donations to operate.
In 2020 and 2021 fundraising efforts were significantly reduced which affected their ability to serve the children in their program, and that has continued into 2022.
The group says all matches that are currently active will stay that way, but there will be limitations on new enrollment.
