Holyoke Housing Authority Community Sites...
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke is proud to operate satellite units in several Holyoke Housing Authority communities: The Toepfert Apartments, Lyman Terrace, Beaudoin Village, and the Churchill Homes.
In every community, boys and girls are often left to find their own friendship and recreation in the streets. An increasing number of youth are at home with little or no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. That is why, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke is proud to operate satellite units in several Holyoke Housing Authority communities: The Toepfert Apartments, Lyman Terrace, Beaudoin Village, and the Churchill Homes. These units enable the Club to serve children where they live … in their own neighborhoods.
In addition, members of the satellite units receive all the programs offered to members of the Main Club facility: education and career development; the arts; sports & recreation; health & life skills, and leadership development. They also have access to the Club’s gym, pool, and climbing wall.
