INTRODUCTION TO THE EASTERN REGION
What began as Homenetmen Eastern United States in 1921 with only 2 chapters in New York and Detroit is today a thriving organization with ten Chapters, two "Miavor"s, and over 900 members throughout the Eastern United States. Through the years of growth and expansion, Homenetmen's objective remains constant, and the standards and expectations of the youth have remained high.
The size of the Homenetmen family in the Eastern Region has grown over the years, establishing chapters in New York (1921/1977), Detroit (1921/1976), Philadelphia (1922/1978), Boston (1923/1973), Providence (1923/1981), Washington (1971), New Jersey (1975), Chicago (1975), Florida (1981), Albany, NY (1986), and "Miavors" in Charlotte (2015), and Greater Merrimack Valley (2017).
These chapters and "miavors" of Homenetmen are governed by the Regional Executive. The responsibility of each chapter and "miavor" is to organize for its members scouting and athletic activities, in addition to social, education, and cultural programs.
