About the BigHouse Foundation
The BigHouse Foundation was founded in 2009 as the dream of two college students to impact the world of foster care in a positive way. After being personally exposed to the needs these children and families have, they knew they could no longer sit back and do nothing. BigHouse now focuses on serving families in two ways, by providing resources and building relationships.
The Mission Statement
Our mission is to connect the needs of foster families with the generosity of the community through the love of Jesus Christ. We aim to impact the lives of children in foster care in a positive way through meeting their needs and serving their foster families. We are passionate about advocating for these families and educating the community on the needs of children in the foster care system.
In 2017, the event raised $4,948 for The BigHouse Foundation, and vent coordinator, Rachel Wicks said that 100 percent of the proceeds of this year’s event will be donated as well.
