Worship and Civic Organizations

One of the key elements that contributes to Hobe Sound’s small-town feel is community involvement. Civic organizations and clubs play an important role in establishing and enhancing Hobe Sound’s character and vitality.

One such organization is the General Federation of Women’s Club’s Hobe Sound chapter, whose aim is to raise funds for scholarships and to emphasize the importance of volunteerism. Members offer their experience and time to various community service programs, including the arts, conservation, education, home life, international outreach and public issues.

Another group making positive changes is the Banner Lake Club, which has an ongoing goal to improve the quality of life for residents who require income assistance. Its community center serves as a food pantry and soup kitchen on Fridays, as well as a senior meal program site on weekdays. Moreover, the club hosts an after-school and summer program called BLAST (Banner Lake After School Time) for students ages 5-18. Participants engage in homework hour, tutoring, art classes, soccer, dance classes and other enrichment activities.

Other noteworthy community contributions and projects include the Apollo School Foundation’s work to acquire and rehabilitate a symbol of local history: a former two-room schoolhouse that is now used as a history museum and educational facility.

Hobe Sound is proud to also be home to the Boys & Girls Club of Martin County; Natives Helping Natives; the Hall-Bryan VFW Post; Hobe Sound Community Chest; Hobe Sound Port Salerno Rotary Club; Amvets; and Toastmasters International.
