In 1929, Grace Bauer, the first Probation Officer in Tippecanoe County, noticed she was providing services to a high number of juvenile delinquents from the "south side" of Lafayette. In an effort to provide juveniles with alternatives to delinquent behavior, she joined with the Federation of Women's Clubs, the Tourist Club and other service organizations to launch the "Community House Association." The program became known as the South End Community Center in 1935 when Mrs. George P. Haywood purchased the house being used by the association and deeded it to the organization. Begun primarily as a service to juvenile delinquent boys, the organization developed and supported the South End Community Center, which provided recreation, food and clothing relief in response to needs identified by the community residents. Funding for operations came from memberships, club and individual donations and "teas" and all services were provided by volunteers. The first paid staff person was hired for a part-time position in 1938 to supervise the activities. In 1957, what is now CFRC became incorporated as South Side Community and Day Care Center, and became a United Fund Agency.
