In 1929, the stock market crashed, the depression was beginning, and many families fell on hard times. Those most affected were the children of these families. With that the community decided to build the Boys' Club. In 1972, through a matching grant from the Charles Hayden Foundation and a response from the City of New Rochelle, The Women’s Auxiliary and other community members made possible the addition of a gymnasium, game room, shower and locker room, and office to the existing building. Over the years, thousands of kids from all races and creeds have come through the Boys & Girls Club programs and moved on to become responsible, successful adults and community minded citizens. The longevity of the Club is the result of hard work and dedication by our Board of Directors, and adult associations. The Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle serves approximately 1,200 members a year.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
