Building the Best – Expansion Project

Building the Best

 We’re Building a New 33,000 Square-Foot Clubhouse

Help Us Meet Our $7.6 Million Goal


We are very excited to share that Best of the Batch is growing!!!  After being in our building for the past 13 years we have outgrown our space.  We are preparing to expand and build a state of the art “Educational Clubhouse” for our community.  Currently we are the home for Steel Valley Elementary Educational Support Center also known as “Baby Batch” --- A few programs we provide are mentoring, tutoring, after school, 3-D printing lab, study lounge, Grub Time, Batchpacks, Girl Talk, Project C.H.U.C.K., Batch A Toys and much more.  

Join the 16 Club! 

Help us raise the remaining $1.8 million of our $7.6 million goal to build and sustain a new 26,683-square-foot state-of-the-art education center on our current Clubhouse site in Homestead. As you’ll see, there are numerous opportunities for you or your organization to support this wondrous endeavor and have a high-impact, high-visibility presence in the lives of so many children.

The Best is Yet to Come

The new Clubhouse will serve as an education center and true hive of activity for the Homestead community… a community that already considers our current, over-stressed Clubhouse a gathering place for young people.


We hope that we can count on your continued support in helping our young people choose to be the best of the batch throughout life. Please donate today.
