It's goal is to help young people by giving them a role model or mentor to look up to.
Now the agency itself is asking for your help to stay in business.
Last week, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Bluegrass made a call for help.
And Central Kentucky has answered.
Last Friday, the non-profit organization was in desperate need of donations to keep its doors open.
And since that time, the community has stepped forward and pledged nearly $50,000.
Some of the big contributors included Georgetown College and the Central Kentucky Blood Center.
Big Brothers Big Sisters in Lexington has also hired a new Executive Director to help with fundraising.
The overall goal is to raise $250,000 which would allow the organization to get by until the biggest fundraiser of the year, 'Bowl for Kids Sake'.
The event starts next week in Madison County.Help Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass
