Brief History

The West Ends Boys Club opened in 1968, but was soon renamed John H. Harland Boys Club in March of 1970, in honor of Mr. John H. Harland, who made substantial contributions for the building of a new facility and his devotion to his community. A decade later, the club began serving girls and thus became the John H. Harland Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta.
