    Investing In Futures

    For more than 95 years, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club has been positively impacting the lives of thousands of children in Richmond’s East End.

    Our programs weave together academics, enrichment, recreation and character formation to help each child realize his or her full potential to achieve a great future.  And by promising a brighter future for the youth of our community, we’re healing lives and developing leaders for life, by creating a path to successful careers, which will lead to strong citizens who raise families without barriers, live hope-filled lives and give back to their community.
