Kimi-Scott McGreevy
Program Coordinator
Kimi-Scott McGreevy thinks one's work should have meaning. In her quest for meaning she has gained some serious non-profit cred by creating job training opportunities as a Business Development Specialist with Horizon Goodwill Industries and by securing vetted, caring mentors for at-risk children as Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Alleghenies. Currently, Kimi-Scott is striving to facilitate an integrated health care provider network through Western Maryland AHEC as the new Network Director of Mountain Health Alliance.
Prior to donning her non-profit cape, she worked as a private consultant in marketing and grant writing. She also once worked as a newspaper reporter. In her life as Lois Lane, she won a Mark Twain Associated Press award for her feature writing and won two first place awards from the West Virginia Newspaper Association for a weekly column she wrote. While she was born and raised in Cumberland, she left to attend college at Fairmont State College in Fairmont, WV, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in English Literature. Her travels then took her to North Africa and throughout Europe before she settled in Washington, DC, for about ten years.

That's exactly the kind of relationship the program tries to foster, said Kimi-Scott McGreevy, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Alleghenies.
"Alivia and her Big Sister, they really represent the best that can come from this program," said McGreevy, who took over as director last spring and is striving to grow the organization locally.
An affiliate of the 100-year-old national organization Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Alleghenies has operated in Cumberland since the late 1980s. Currently, about 40 children ages 6 to 16 are paired with 40 volunteer adult mentors, McGreevy said.
Another 50 children are on a waiting list, she said.
"That is one of the biggest challenges throughout the United States is getting those mentors in the door," McGreevy said, adding that the organization is always recruiting volunteers, who are vetted through a screening process.
Some adults are hesitant to get involved because they're not sure what to do with a child - or how they can help, McGreevy said.
"It's not really about entertaining the child," she said. "It's really about doing everyday things."
If you like to garden, for example, show the child how to garden. One current "Big" is a runner, McGreevy said, and he has helped get his "Little" interested in running. Recently, the "Little" - now 13 - beat the "Big" in a 5K race, she said.
"We work with our mentors so they understand it's not about coming into the program and spending money on the children," McGreevy said. "We actually discourage Bigs from spending a lot of money on Littles ... It's more about the companionship."
For potential volunteers who want to "get their feet wet," a Lunch Buddies program that McGreevy is planning to relaunch this fall could be a good starting place.

"A mentor can make a huge difference in the life of a child," said Kimi-Scott McGreevy, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Alleghenies.

McGreevy is making efforts to increase community involvement and the recently revived lunch buddy program is bringing good results, she said.
The organization needs both funding and volunteers. The most recent fundraiser for the organization was Bowl for Kids' Sake on Saturday at The Bowler in LaVale. Fifty-seven teams, 11 more than last year, participated.
"We're definitely growing," McGreevy said.
...
A business adopting a school means a pool of volunteers is available for children, McGreevy said.
The lunch buddy program also offers a good option for people interested in helping the program, but unsure of the time they can commit.
 Big Brothers Big Sisters currently has 45 children matched with mentors, with 17 on the waiting list. That waiting list is sure to grow, McGreevy said, because once a match is made, there isn't much lag time until a new child is added to the waiting list.
"We want to grow our programs; we have a tremendous need in this area for this kind of program," McGreevy said at a recent meeting of Cumberland's mayor and City Council.
It takes about $100,000 a year to keep the organization going. The local office is a member of the national organization, and actually pays thousands of dollars a year in dues and is required to pay for an independent audit for the local office. At the recent council meeting, McGreevy was requesting city block grant funding.
After hearing McGreevy explain the organization's funding needs, Councilwoman Nicole Wagoner asked how much each match costs. McGreevy said she'd get the number to Wagoner.

There are many expenses that wouldn't occur to people, McGreevy said, including secondary auto insurance liability policies on each Big Brother and Big Sister.

For the first time in several years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Alleghenies will be seeking funding, said Kimi-Scott McGreevy, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Alleghenies. The organization is hoping to use the funds to expand programming for a waiting list of more than 20 children, she said.
