Project Report | Jan 23, 2017
Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Country New Facility

By Jeanette A. Koechner | Director of Community Development

The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County continues to serve the children in the community.  The Club's mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.  The Club in St. Charles, MO, was relocated to a new facility in June 2014 without being debt free. The challange of disposing of the outstanding balance remains constant.  Donors are sought out by Board Members, Community Members and Staff.  Contacting all avenues remain constant and extremely important.  

The outstanding debt has not stood in the way of providing the valuable programs to the childred served at the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County.  Membership fees of $25 per year per member has remained constant.  For some families this may even be a problem, but no child is turned away.  Programs are designed to keep pace with the ever changes in the community and society.  

The need for the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County will never go away.  It is extremely fortunate that the Club can provide a safe and secure environment where children can participate in age appropriate programs and acitivities.  All programs at the Clubs are derived from the following:  Education and Career Development, Character and Leadership Development, Health and Live Skills, Sports, Fitness and Recreation as well as the Arts.  By participating in these program, children are encouraged to prepare for a bright and rewarding future.  They are encouraged and help to keep pace or excel in their grades.  They are taught the value of healthy living thru exercise and proper eating habits.  They are taught how to avoid the pitfalls of the use of illegal drugs, alcohol and other issues that face our young boys and girls as they pass thru the years of becoming responsible adults.  Over 60% of the children served by the Boys & Girls Cubs of St. Charles County live in or below the poverty level.  It is important that the Club continues to do what is does to provide for the children.  The Boys & Girls Cubs of St. Charles County will remain to be a home away from home for many children in the communuity.
