In June 2008, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco officially opened the doors to its newly-renovated, state-of-the-art Clubhouse in Hunters Point. The Club provides the only full-service resource for 6 to 18-year-olds on Hunters Point Hill – a community that for decades had desperately lacked services for young people. BGCSF started serving the Hunters Point community in 2005 at the request of Mayor Gavin Newsom and City Attorney Dennis Herrera, who asked BGCSF to transform an old Housing Authority site into a safe haven for local youth. Their partnership has been critical in this historic project. Other key partners include the San Francisco 49ers and the San Francisco Giants, who built a Junior Giants Field on-site and later led the effort to rename the Club after the great Willie Mays.
