When founders Bernie Fields and Arthur Director began Big Brothers Big Sisters in CT in the early 1960s, the organization covered only Middletown. Now, as Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters celebrates its 52nd year of helping children facing adversity succeed, we’ve grown our service area to include 132 of Connecticut’s 169 municipalities in Hartford, Tolland, Windham, Middlesex, Litchfield, New London and upper New Haven counties (the shaded section of the map represents our nearly statewide service area.)
