Nearly one-third of Hartford’s school children live in the Southend, yet we do not have a Club in that part of Hartford.

Opening a new door for 1500 youth

The new Club will serve an additional 1,500 children in the city’s southeast corridor. The new Southend Club will help fill a desperately needed gap in the community by giving kids a safe place to learn and grow during the critical after school hours from 3-9 pm.
