I cannot imagine a more important organization in our community for helping to give young people more opportunities to grow up to be strong and caring individuals.
While the Club has been servicing the kids of Bloomington since 1956, it was not until 1961 that the National Guard Armory located at 311 S. Lincoln Street was first used to house Club activities and programs. Fast forward three years later and the Club purchased the armory, thus making this site the official home of the Club. Since that moment 50+ years ago, thousands of kids, staff, and volunteers have walked the halls of the historic Lincoln Street Club.
Over time, it became strongly apparent that the Lincoln Street Club needed a modern facelift in order to serve even more kids in a more structurally-sound facility. That time came in 2016 when the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington officially launched the BIG Futures Capital Campaign – a community-led, collaborative effort to raise money to benefit the Lincoln Street Club.
With the strong backing of the community, the BIG Futures Capital Campaign provided the financial resources to update the Lincoln Street Club, and, in 2018, the renovated doors of the Lincoln Street Club were officially reopened to a new generation.
The multi-million dollar renovation included an updated kitchen space, a refurbished gymnasium, lockers to store member’s bookbags after school, mutliple program rooms, a dedicated teen space, staff offices, plus so much more! While the inside of the building has seen a significant upgrade, the original structure still stands offering GREAT FUTURES to all who enter the historic halls of the
Lincoln Street Club!
