    The children we serve have multiple factors putting them at risk of dropping out of school, participating in risk taking behaviors, or turning to drugs, alcohol, violence. The 2015 Kids Count data for the children served by BBBS in 2015, revealed 73% in La Plata County and 86% in Archuleta County, received free or reduced lunch, far exceeding the community stats of 32% and 50%, in our counties, respectively. One third come from two parent homes. 48%+ indicate neglect or abuse at home.
