Hill County Paw Pals, Hill County, Texas
  

Mission:

"To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens". 

History:

A recent grass roots movement has lead to the organization of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hill County, Inc. A steering committee representing a cross section of Hillsboro residents was formed though the efforts of the Hillsboro Police Department and local resident Waseem Subhani. The committee nominated a slate for a Board of Directors, and they were installed on January, 3, 2006. County Court at Law Judge A. Lee Harris, President of the Board, remarked, “Our children need additional opportunities within a structured environment. All of us hope that by providing a Boys and Girls Club setting our youth will be steered toward constructive endeavors that better prepare them for the future.”
