In 2013, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco received NMTC financing to support construction of a new 30,000 square-foot Clubhouse in the Western Addition. The goal was to serve a total of 2,000 children and teens annually, ages 6-18, with an average daily attendance of 190 – spread proportionally across elementary, middle, and high school ages. This new Clubhouse replaces the old Ernest Ingold Club on Page Street in the Upper Haight, which was built in 1952. The old facility is worn from decades of use with old infrastructure (plumbing, electrical, heating), aged bathroom facilities, an inefficient layout, and no energy efficient systems. That said, the primary reason for the new Clubhouse is to relocate. The children and teens served do not live in the Upper Haight, but instead largely live in the Western Addition, Lower Haight and Hayes Valley. Moving the Club aligns with our mission of “serving the youth who need us the most”.
