Hobe Sound’s small-town atmosphere makes getting involved in the community fun, easy and important. The members of the many civic organizations and clubs play an important role in establishing and enhancing Hobe Sound’s character.
The various organizations have bettered the community in countless ways. A small sample of past projects and efforts are the GFWC’s Hobe Sound Women’s Club, Keep Kids Safe initiative; the Apollo School Foundation’s work to rehabilitate the only surviving two-room schoolhouse in Martin County; the Veterans of Foreign Wars donation of flags to schools along with lessons on proper flag etiquette; and the Boys & Girls Club of Martin County’s positive environment for local youth.
Hobe Sound is proud to play host to Natives Helping Natives, the Hobe Sound Community Chest, Hobe Sound/Port Salerno Rotary Club, American Veterans, and Toastmasters International.
Many local churches offer places for worship, as well as more community involvement. Hobe Sound itself is home to several churches that cover denominations such as Catholic, Methodist, Baptist, Greek Orthodox, and more. Nearby communities offer even more opportunities for worship like Temple Beit HaYam in Stuart, Christ Memorial Chapel in the Town of Jupiter Island and the Muslim Community of Palm Beach/Martin County in West Palm Beach.
