Samuel L. Jones Boys & Girls Club

Samuel L. Jones Boys & Girls Club

My Boys & Girls Club is love. Love is something that could cover the whole world a million times over but come from the heart of one little girl. My Club to me is diversity. To be different as we learn and strive in what separates us from other people. It’s so full of many shapes, sizes, colors and hues. It’s a place where the best thing to be is you. The Club for me is a place for security, not only as a place of refuge but also as a rock to stand on, or a stage to be whoever or whatever you want to be... The Boys & Girls Club is the heart of my community and to me that is one of the best types of family there is. By: Keeley Harris

Brief History

The Samuel L. Jones Club was founded in 1970 by citizens of Decatur, GA.  The MABC bought five acres of Parkland from the city of Decatur, The Jaycees, Whitehead Foundation and Attorney Ron Armstrong, were very instrumental in Samuel L. Jones Club opening its doors in May 1970, modeling the facility after the John H. Harland Club, which is located in Atlanta, GA.
