Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club is excited about the opportunity to serve the children and adults in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood. For nearly 40 years the youth development agency has provided life-changing programs and services for kids ages 6 to 18. As a chartered member of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Herbert Hoover has an outstanding record of effective program and financial administration, community outreach and facility management.
The activities for senior citizens will continue to be a major focus at Adams Park Community Center. Youth experiences will cover five core areas: Character & Leadership Development; Education & Career Development; The Arts; Health & Life Skills; and Sports, Fitness & Recreation. Programs and services for adults will also be incorporated into the schedule.
Youth members of the Boys & Girls Club at Adams Park will have access to activities at the north Grand campus, including free dental services. Clarkson EyeCare has agreed to establish a free vision care program at Adams Park Community Center. Flint Fowler, Executive Director of Herbert Hoover, stated “The staff and board are looking forward to establishing a productive and long-term relationship with the residents of Forest Park Southeast.”
