Trinka Hudson is a single mother of four who has found a safe haven, a resource and a family in the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Western Reserve. When Trinka was left alone to care for her four children, she wasn't sure where to turn, who to depend on or how to start over. That is when she was introduced to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Western Reservre. Ms. Hudson and her four children Patrick (12) Neriah (11) and twins Jadya and Jazmyn (8) have been members of the Club community for six years. Trinka firmly believes that the Clubs have been extremely instrumental in shaping her children and watching them grow, due to the "fun with a purpose" programs, and supportive relationships from Club staff. The Clubs are here to impact one child, one family and one community at a time. Support our mission and help us continue to support families. We thank the Branch family for sharing their story.

"The Clubs to me means family, because they have embraced me and my children." - Trinka Hudson
