About the Organization

Believe in Big Change (BIBC) is a start-up organization empowering single at-risk mothers, by providing the necessary life, family, leadership and business skills, tools and platforms to move from surviving to thriving in their communities. 


BIBC’s model will be the first to bridge the significant gaps in the HUD Continuum of Care model that emergency shelters, missions, treatment centers and the affordable housing model do not meet. The BIBC mission is to solve the world’s homelessness problem by empowering single at-risk mothers.


The BIBC program will implement longer-term solutions that incorporate a “permanent supportive housing” model. The initial phase of the leadership program is expected to last eight months and be provided at the on-site facilities.


The Los Angeles-based BIBC Leadership Center is in its start-up phase, with opportunities for staff, donors, and supporters to play a critical role in its operations and vision. It is not a treatment center or a homeless shelter.

This position is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual to develop and grow programming that will have a direct impact on strengthening families and communities.
