2010.04.10 The Boys & Girls Club of the West Valley 7245 Remmet Avenue, Canoga Park CA,91303. The Boys & Girls Club of the West Valley sits in a challenging neighborhood for a child to grow up in, an area where its young residents are vulnerable to many negative socio-economic forces that often make growing up very difficult: • More than 60 percent of children in Canoga Park elementary and middle schools are enrolled in free and reduced-cost lunch programs.• There are only two after-school programs within a one-mile radius of the Club. • Out of the 2,500 members of the Boys & Girls Club of the West San Fernando Valley, 81 percent live in homes with an annual household income under $30,000. • Thirty-five percent of the Club’s children come from single-parent households. Organizations like the Boys & Girls Club are squeezed from two directions during challenging economic times: more young people are in desperate need of the Club’s services,including supportive adults and a safe, supportive environment, while at the same time,financial donations to support its activities are more difficult to obtain than ever. The need for a Boys & Girls Club in the area has never been more apparent and its focus on offering a place where children can experience a positive environment of friendship, playtime, and learning has never been greater.
