Owensboro-Mike Horn Unit
The Owensboro Boys Club opened in 1967 in a building donated by Trinity Episcopal Church. The unit was soon renamed The Cliff Hagan Boys Club, in recognition of Cliff Hagan, an Owensboro native and standout basektball player at Owensboro High School, the University of Kentucky and in the National Basketball Association. Over the years, the club grew and changed locations. In 1993, the club opened its programs and services to girls and became The Cliff Hagan Boys & Girls Club. In 2005, we opened our doors at our current location, Mike Horn Unit.

A Look Inside The Club
Operation Under Armour
Thanks to the generosity of Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Under Armour, the Cliff Hagan Boys & Girls Club recently received 5,500 pairs of women's shoes sizes 5-14. The Club has begun to distribute the shoes to all its service locations. Additionally, the Club is providing the opportunity for youth serving non-profit organizations in Owensboro to pick up shoes for their clients.
The latest doantion is part of the Club's ongoing Operation Community Cares program which was implemented last year during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the generosity of our benefactors, the Club was able to provide our Club members with resources and support throughout this past year. The Club also extends a thank you to the students at Heritage Park High School for sorting and organizing the shoes in preparation for distribution.
Under Armour has long been known for its community outreach, and we are grateful for their generous contribution.

National Boys & Girls Club Week

Cooking with Mr. Gus
Bountiful Kids was made possible through our friends at Owensboro Health! Mr. Gus facilitated cooking classes for club members ages 8-11 for 5 weeks. Some of the tastey treats were pita pizzas, cookies, breakfast, and homemade pasta.
Each Club member learned basic culinary facts, the safety of cooking, and learned new recipes!
At the end of the program each club member was able to take home their very own culinary items and Boys & Girls Club apron
Thank you again to Owensboro Health for making this possible and to Mr. Gus, our extraordinarily Chef!
To support our families during this uncertain time, the Club began to sponsor Welcome Back Family Nights for Club members and their families in March 2021.
Each Family Night provides a well-balaced meal and drink for each person that attends along with an activity everyone can participate in!
The reason is simple: Kids do well when their families do well. This has been the next step to help our families return to normalcy after the pandemic. It is vital to re-establish relationships with Club members' families and to allow interaction of staff with parents. The family nights will help to rebuild relationships with Club members' families. Our families have been faced with many hardships throughout this past year. The Family Nights program aligns with two of our five key elements: (1) fun and sense of belonging; and (2) supportive relationships.
MobyMax Monday's are a must here at the Club!

Thanks to our friends at WHAS Crusade for Children, members have the opportunity to improve their reading skills through an interactive program. We love seeing our members excell!
