Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Houston's Mission Bend location opened at 8709 Addicks Clodine Road, Houston, during the first week of November.

Fort Bend County owns the building that houses the new club, and Fort Bend County Commissioner Grady Prestage has served as the catalyst for BGCGH coming to the Mission Bend area, BGCGH President Kevin Hattery said.


The Mission Bend location is the fourth in Fort Bend County. Applications for new members ages 6-17 are being accepted. 713-868-3426.
