'Growing programs,' supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs

04/29/2024 4:04 pm

“As we’ve gotten to know each other better, it seemed very fitting that we help sponsor some of the work of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse, as they are fulfilling our mission of really disrupting our current systems so that all can live in a much healthier way,” shared Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration Sue Ernster in a recent conversation -- our most recent ministry grant session -- with the organization’s CEO, Jake Erickson, in our latest ministry grant session.

The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs is to “inspire and empower all young people to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.” Jake spoke about the relationship with FSPA and the congregation’s impact on their growing programming which he described as “Almost endless: mental health club, academic programming, self-sufficiency and graduation  programs. In addition the support helps to provide “basic needs for kids: meals, birthday presents, something to lift them up around the holidays. 

“FSPA is helping us to accomplish all our goals. We are so thankful.”
