Big Brother Big Sister Foundation's Executive Director Recognized by Massachusetts State Senate

Steve Beck, Executive Director of Big Brother Big Sister Foundation (BBBSF) recently received a special achievement honor from Massachusetts Clubhouse Coalition (MCC) and the Massachusetts State Senate for his unwavering commitment to MCC’s mission “helping people with long term mental illness secure employment, housing, education, services and support.”

“Steve not only counts 80 clubhouse members among his staff at Big Brother Big Sister Foundation, in his role as a MCC’s board member, he has been instrumental in connecting us with major business partners and in-depth community resources.” Reva Stein, MCCs Executive Director

During Mr. Beck’s decade-long tenure as Executive Director, he re-organized BBBS Foundation to perform as a “for profit” entity.  Today, BBBSF is completely self-funded, with admin costs only 12.6% of total revenue.  For every dollar the Foundation spends, it returns $1.37 to the community.

Recognized as a progressive innovator who understands how to use cutting edge technology within a challenging budget, Mr. Beck teaches charities across the U.S. how to replicate the for profit model.  

When asked about his service as a MCC board member, Mr. Beck is modest but resolute, “Recent studies have shown that 85% of adults with mental illness cannot get gainful employment in the U.S. We can change that.”
