What’s it all about?
When tragedy strikes, the effects are devastating, and all too often, it strikes in the form of a death or disabling injury of a law enforcement officer or firefighter. The 100 Club of Southeast Texas is here to provide immediate response to the needs of the family of a fallen officer or firefighter. Our members realize that money can’t make up for the loss of a loved one, but representatives of the club visit with family members within 48 hours of a tragedy. Our purpose is to provide not only support and understanding, but a substantial contribution to the financial needs of the surviving spouse and children.

When we talk about charitable organizations, no other cause is so close to my heart as the 100 Club of Southeast Texas. During my career in law enforcement, I lost several friends and personally know that each day these men and women walk out of their front doors without thinking that they might not return home. Much has changed and much has stayed the same since 1988 when Beaumont Police Officer Paul Hulsey's death led to the founding of what was then The 100 Club of Jefferson County. After the young Officer Hulsey was slain in the line of duty, a few concerned community leaders took the initiative to find a way to help his wife and children and to stand ready in the event that such a need should arise again.
