Friars Club

Friars Club is a 156 year old non-profit social service organization dedicated to serving the special needs of Cincinnati’s at-risk children through organized sports, education, nutrition and fitness.

Friars Club was established in Over the Rhine in 1860 to help German Immigrant parents keep their children safe and busy after school. During the great Depression a new facility was built at 65 W. McMillan that continued to serve not only inner-city youth but children all over the Greater Cincinnati area. This building on McMillan located in Clifton, provided a broad scope of programs from prevention to treatment. It housed dependent youth, homeless families, community empowerment programs and youth development programs.
