This application will begin the process of applying a child for a Big Friend. After submitting this application, the parent or guardian will be contacted by a program Match Coordinator. If this program is appropriate for the service - the next step will be a child interview. The program will also need to collect information from any professionals; therapists, social workers, teachers, etc, who might help us better serve the child. An application may be rejected at any time during the process. It is best that the applied child understand that getting a Big Friend is only a possibility, not a guarantee.
