Big Brother Chris, a Deputy Chief Probation Officer of Madera County and Little Brother Riley, a Madera 5th grader, have been matched in our Lunch Buddies Program since March 2014. Chris and Riley see each other every week for lunch and sometimes do fun things out in the community together.
This one-to-one mentoring has helped Riley with his school work and helped him stay out of the principal's office. Riley sees Chris as his real brother and looks forward to their weekly visits.
In 2016, Riley nominated Chris for our Annual Big Brother of the Year Awards and Chris was chosen for his dedication to Riley.
