Jeff Bates and his staff are creating a safe, nurturing, educational place for the children in Hood County. The staff who work with the children are encouraging and are positive role models. Jeff's team designs fun things for the kids to do that keep them coming back year after year. They learn to give back to the community as well.
I can't say enough good things about this club. It has given the children a safe, fun, positive place to go. Although the children think they are just playing, the club is teaching and helping them grow into productive citizens. The leadership and staff are perfect examples of how to do it right.
This organization is such a blessing to this community and it's children! The staff are changing our young people's lives on a daily basis. I am always most impressed with the integration of art education, a subject that most of these kids would not be exposed to. I am grateful for all of the work they do improving our community, one child at a time!
