THE NEED:  To raise up a new generation that can break down the walls entrapping at-risk youth!

Imagine giving a low-income, inner-city, at-risk kid the chance to play club sports. Without Heart for the City, these kids could not afford organized sports programs.  This can run as much as $500 per kid!  And, we also provide the transportation.

But, behind the scenes--it is more than “just sports."

We work with the WHOLE kid.

During practices, we help them walk through the struggles and pressures inner city life brings.  At the start of every scheduled session, coaching and mentoring focuses on processing emotions and scrutinizing the events of their day.

'Do it for the kids"

-Joe Eriquez

Chavez is the sports director of Heart for the City. He wants to build young athletes and inspire them to find greater meaning in life. He hopes that by being a positive role model in a Childs life then those children will implement his teachings and become christ like individuals. 
"Joe was always a father figure to me, I see myself in a lot of these kids. I want to be a positive role model in their life."
- Chavez
