In times of tragedy and crisis, Boys & Girls Clubs have stepped up to provide safe places for kids and teens. Today, the organization is committed more than ever, to ensure club staff, members, families, and communities have the resources and support they need to navigate these uncertain times – while also collaborating with state and local officials to do more.
“I have been incredibly proud of our staff and Board of Directors in their ability to stretch their thinking, innovate, and re-imagine our service delivery model so that we can best serve the community during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Joe Sullivan, Chief Professional Officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Volusia/Flagler counties.

The COVID-19 relief fund will also enable club doors to re-open so that they can continue to provide out-of-school time services to current members and the local community.
“We understand that in this environment things remain fluid. We are continuously assessing our services to ensure we are meeting the needs of the community in the most effective way,” said Sullivan.
“We look forward to continuing to work with our partners to heal our community and do what we do best, serving our at-risk youth and ensuring their future success as caring, productive, and responsible citizens.”
