Brief History

The Joseph B. Whitehead Boys & Girls Club started out as a summer recreational program in South Bend Park for neighborhood kids in 1944. Having served 500 boys, since inception, the Club was completely refurbished between 1956-1959 by the Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation and renamed "Whitehead" in honor of the foundation's original donor.Today, nearly 300 boys and girls participate in the Clubs after-school program daily.
