So great to hear about what you guys are doing. Is this just an East Coast thing? I live in LA and want to do something with soccer and homeless kids and adults. I would certainly appreciate the opportunity to talk to some one within your organization.

No, there are Street Soccer USA teams at various stages of development in 16 cities. In LA the team is organized out of Boyle Heights, let by an organization called Jovenes. We are working with them to build up Street Soccer in LA. Your help would be great. email rob@streetsoccerusa.org to get connected. Thanks! Lawrence
