THE HENRY HYDE CENTER HISTORY
In 1999, the Addison Police Department began offering After School programming as well as summer, spring and winter camps for the children in the area. Through grant opportunities, the Village of Addison began construction of the Henry Hyde Resource Center in October of 2006. The doors opened on September 21, 2007.
The Henry Hyde Resource Center partners with public and private funding organizations to supplement staffing needs and to continue providing quality programming. We are fortunate to be the recipients of the following grants.
- Community Development Block Grant – provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and distributed by the DuPage Community Development Commission.
- DuPage Community Foundation Education Grant – provided by the DuPage Community Foundation in Wheaton.
As a community-based program, volunteers are always welcome and needed!
Volunteers provide a variety of services ranging from homework assistance, distributing food, translation services, running craft activities, chaperones for field trips and much more!
Volunteers are screened by the Police Department to ensure the safety of the children.
