Friars Club of Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Friars Club is a 152-year-old non-profit social service organization dedicated to serving the special needs of Cincinnati's at-risk children through organized sports, activity, nutrition and fitness.

Many of today's kids lack parental supervision. Children need supervision, especially in low income areas. There is a tendency for high drug and alcohol abuse, a breakdown of family structure and a climate of violence. As evidenced by the growing violence in our city today, as a community, we are not offering enough opportunities for youth to develop their values in a positive way.

Friars Club offers that opportunity to boys and girls and establishes a different set of values teaching them respect, responsibility, good sportsmanship and leadership and conflict resolution skills through sports.

Friars Club instruction and guidance builds healthy bodies, minds and spirit by bolstering self-esteem and self-discipline, reinforcing positive behavior and addressing nutrition needs.

Friars Club is a Sponsored Ministry of the Franciscans, Province of St. John the Baptist, Cincinnati, Ohio USA
