Who We Serve
SBIM serves vulnerable children and their families who face a wide variety of challenges on a daily basis.
Many lack space to call their own, with over half living in single family dwellings that house multiple family groups or non-relatives. The majority do not have the ability or financial opportunity to enroll in afterschool programs or extracurricular activities. Children often care for siblings or younger relatives in the absence of a parent or guardian.
Who We Are
SBIM is primarily a volunteer-run, dedicated group of volunteers who truly care and believe that together we have the power to change lives.
SBIM was founded in 2018 by a school counselor and a group of teachers and social workers in Herndon, Virginia. These professionals recognized an urgent and growing need to provide support to young girls in the community, many of whom were suffering as a result of poverty and trauma. Through the years, we have realized there is a deeper need to help the girls’ whole family unit within the community.
SBIM is a 501(c)(3) organization, EIN #83-1447190.
