Challenge

The disparity of wealth in the US, which has worsened in recent years due to the crack epidemic, breaking apart the traditional family and disrupting education among the poor, has created a growing underclass, increasingly young, that is homeless and excluded. Through inclusion and mentorship street soccer offers them a chance to become part of a team to address drug dependency, find a home, training, a job.

Solution

There is a high demand nationwide for effective solutions to homelessness. By hosting an annual US Cup we can provide thousands of homeless a goal to shoot for. By developing street soccer programs in US cities, we can transform thousands of lives.

Long-Term Impact

We want to change the face of homeless services nationwide so that sports and other humanizing activities become key tools to ending homelessness.
