For 52 years now, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana has welcomed thousands of young people into our Clubs with the goal of providing them with safety, support, and opportunity. In this new chapter, we cannot be limited by thinking that the value of our Clubs exists only in a building or physical space; our impact has always extended far beyond walls.
In 2021, the Boys & Girls Club recognized the need for youth services in a Lake Charles. After a pandemic and two catastrophic hurricanes, the Club opened to the youth who needed a safe space, meals, mentors and quality program, most! In partnership with the City of Lake Charles and Mayor Hunter's Partners in Parks program, Cheniere Energy, Chevron, First National Bank and many more, the Club has become a beacon of hope for the children in the community.
The world is changing and organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana are adapting to meet the needs of children and families in our community. Our mission ‘To enable all young people, especially those who need us most …’ has never been more clear! For 52 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana as been a safe place for children to dream and learn, fill their bellies and connect with positive mentors….and we will continue to be there for the kids and families who need us each day, doing Whatever It Takes!
Our mission can only continue with your support! Our children need you.
