HISTORY OF HPNC

Hyde Park Neighborhood Club was founded in 1909 in response to the needs of local youth. Recognizing the challenges and dangers children faced in an early twentieth-century urban neighborhood, community leaders banded together to create a safe place for boys (and soon after, girls) to participate in educational and recreational activities.

HPNC has grown and evolved. With a focus on inclusion, equity, and diversity, we support working families at all income levels with high-quality childcare and enrichment programs. HPNC draws young people ages 0-18 from across the South Side.
