Operation Bigs, created by Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County (BBBS of SDC), was created to provide additional support for local military families. It seeks to pair children with a parent in the military, including a deployed parent, with a mentor who is in the military, retired or civilian. Military children face unique challenges that may include separation and loss, in addition to the stresses of military life. Since BBBS of SDC launched Operation Bigs in 2004, it has served more than 1,000 children, but the need for more mentors continues to grow, as San Diego is home to the largest population of active and retired military in the country.
