Cove Boys and Girls Club has new home

COPPERAS COVE, Texas - The Copperas Cove Boys and Girl's Club has been saved and now has a new home.

Earlier this year, we reported the organization was in jeopardy of shutting down after losing it's lease. 

Fairview Community Church Pastor Michael Harrigan has been looking for a way to make a difference in his community, and now he's found it.  

"It was perfect when the Boys and Girl's Club approached us. It was basically an answered prayer," Harrigan says.

He's freeing up some of his church's vacant buildings for the Copperas Cove's Boys and Girl's Club. 

In just a few weeks, two classrooms, a large dining hall and a spacious playground will be open to hundreds of children. 

"It's just a perfect match for them. And a perfect match for us," Harrigan says.

The club was in danger of shutting down and forced to leave it's Fairview Jewel campus and down to just two board members. 

"We had a few board members leave the group for various reasons, and we were faced with the reality of finding a new home," says Daniel Hall, of the Boys and Girl's Club.

Organization leaders hosted several community meetings in an effort to keep the non-profit running.

"I'm pleased to announce that we've recruited 11 new board members and nominated a new office slate and have found a new home," Hall says.

"It's just very exciting. We're really looking forward to it," Harrigan says.

The non-profit is still currently operating out of the Fairview Jewel Elementary campus. They will be moving over to the church next month.
