BIG SIS, Inc. Helps Local Moms

21 Aug

I love helping spread the word about people and groups Making A Difference. One organization we recently featured is helping women find resources they need.

BIG SIS, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the motto: “Helping Women to Help Themselves”.

From basic household items to legal services, BIG SIS, Inc. is helping women and mothers get their lives on the right track.  Attorney Rosalind Johnson is the founder and executive director of the organization.

As attorney and mother of five, Johnson knows what it means to set goals and achieve them. That’s why she’s helping other women.

“By the time I was 25 years old, I had graduated law school with four children,” Johnson said.

B.I.G. S.I.S. stands for “becoming independent, goal-oriented and self-sufficient in society”.

BIG SIS, Inc. provides assistance with groceries and household items for hundreds of people per month, but Johnson is also focused on helping families get on their feet with locating the right resources to fit their needs, such as employability training, resume writing and legal help.

With help from volunteers and interns, Johnson offers affordable legal services for cases involving divorce, child support and foreclosure.

And Johnson is not stopping there, her next BIG plan for BIG SIS, Inc. is a transitional house for girls aging out of foster care.
