CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Wednesday marked a big day for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central West Virginia.

That's because it was moving day.

The organization is settling into their new home at the Schoenbaum center on Charleston's West Side.

The center already houses a number of non-profit organizations, so Sara McDowell, the executive director, says that this will allow them to be a resource and a referral for the other groups as well.

But the biggest reason for the move is that the group is expanding.

"We're growing, so this move is going to allow us to better facilitate matching and mentoring programs in the communities we serve," McDowell said.

Central Van and Storage donated their time to help the non-profit out with the move.

BBBS is a nationwide organization providing youth with mentors to serve as a positive role model in their life.
