The Big Whit 77 Foundaiton believes that every child deserves a loving and supportive home. Open Arms offers financial grants to families going through the adoption process. it is important to us that those families who are called to adoption are not turned away because of the overwhelming cost. Applicaions are accepted twice a year and finacial grants are offered in the Fall and Spring.
We are excited to bring this new opportunity to families in Ouachita and Lincoln parishes. Please the visit website for the application. The Big Whit Foundation is excited to have the opportunity to assist families with thier dream of adoption by offering 2 financial grants per year

Since being in Ms Johnson's care, Brianna has thrived
The foundation awarded Ms. Johnson a $2500 grant that helped with the attorney and court cost and allowed her to move forward with the adoption to secure Brianna into a permanent home.
