In 1998, the Northwood Community, the City of West Palm Beach, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County and the Housing Partnership broke ground on an unprecedented 34,000 square foot state-of-the-art, multiple-use campus in West Palm Beach’s historic Northwood neighborhood.

In 1999, the Boys & Girls Clubs received a generous gift from local philanthropists, Lawrence and Florence De George, resulting in the naming of the Club in honor of Florence De George.

In 2008, the Club received the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s highest honor for overall program excellence. Today, the Club is the jewel in the crown of West Palm Beach’s revitalization of the Northwood community, and a true asset to area children.

“It means a lot that parents take time out of our busy and often challenging lives to help give back to the Club. The Parent Committee creates a sense of community and is a good example to our children that if we work together we can support each other to make the Club a better place.”
