Meet Big Brother Ryan and Little Brother Robert
When Big Brother Ryan lost his house, and his dog, to an electrical fire, his Little Brother, Robert, was worried and scared. Matched for nearly two years, Ryan, who works as a detective with the Roanoke Police Department, and Robert, have formed a close bond. When Robert and his family first heard about the fire, they immediately called their BBBS Match Support Specialist. How could they support Ryan? Was he safe? Ryan jumped back into his weekly meetings with his Little Brother and reminded him that they are always brothers and are there to support one another in hard times.
