Helping our young people grow into confident, trusting, healthy, and educated young adults is the greatest reward we can receive.

Welcome to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana Rodney Simon Unit located in Abbeville, LA.  My name is Brian Ford and I have had the privilege of serving in this organization for nearly 20 years. 

Every day our staff work continuously to meet the needs of our local youth and families.  We strive to provide a home base of friendship and offer programs that are designed to provide all youth in our community with a safe place to play, grow, and learn.  Helping our young people grow into confident, trusting, healthy, and educated young adults is the greatest reward we can receive.  None of this would be possible however, without the generous support of our community, as you guys are an integral part of our success.  We hope to see you throughout the year as you drop by with a friend for a club tour, help facilitate a program, or attend one of our fundraising events.  I appreciate each of you for rising to the occasion to make a difference in our community, by saving and improving the lives of our youth. --- Mr. Brian
