Expanded Basic Needs

Giving kids the courage to dream and families the opportunity to thrive.



The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed that the needs of children and families are greater than ever, and the ability to access basic needs services is critical for these families to thrive. Boys & Girls Clubs will play a bigger role in helping families to receive essential services that support improving childrens’ performance in the classroom and their overall health and wellbeing.

Expanded Basic Needs is built on three components: Our Basic Needs Center, Parent Support Services, and our Mobile Club Experience.
