According to The Challenger Comunity News, Chairwoman April Basket Said.

As a young person who grew up coming to this center and  as a mother who sends her child to the Boys and Girls Club facilities, I know how important these assets are to our youth, especially in the Masten area.

Back in the early 80s, I was a member of the Masten Boys & Girls Club of Buffalo, in the 90s became one of the guidance counselors through the Mayor Summer Youth Program. This is such a great thing to see happening in this community that I grew up in.

According to The Challenger Comunity News, The Masten Boys & Girls Clubhouse of Buffalo is only operating at 50% capacity due to COVID-19. In the future, they are expected to be able to accommodate 120 youth after total restoration.
