Since its inception in 2002, the Henry R. Lewis Foundation has raised approximately $7 million to benefit the West End House Boys and Girls Club of Allston/Brighton, Massachusetts. The West End House has been providing uninterrupted support, hope, and opportunity to young people in the Boston area since 1906. The Henry R. Lewis Foundation has successfully helped the West End House continue its mission to "inspire and enable youth from all backgrounds to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens."
The West End House Boys and Girls Club is an award-winning social and recreational facility that has helped over 2,000 youth each year (before its expansion). With programs that range from sports leagues, swimming lessons, tutoring, arts and crafts, climbing, and more, the West End House provides a safe and appealing alternative to the streets for countless individuals. The children of this Club are from all walks of life - representing different races, ages, and family situations. For these children, the facilities and programs of the West End House are often an oasis of stability, security, and new possibilities. Vantage greatly appreciates any contributions to the West End House from our travelers and extended family. Donations can be made online by going to www.westendhouse.org.
