Street Soccer USA Helps Homeless Youth and Adults Find Support and Teamwork in Portland, Oregon
The Toffee Club Works with Street Soccer PDX to Help the Homeless in Portland, Oregon
Homelessness is one of the biggest challenges in Portland, Oregon. We see it and feel it every day. What can we do?
Work with an organization that has a plan that works.
Our long term partnership with Street Soccer PDX, a branch of Street Soccer USA allows us to directly impact the people who live on the streets of Portland. Knowing that there is a way to actually make a difference helps ease the concern we all feel when we interact with the homeless population that is often directly outside our doors.
How Does Street Soccer USA and Street Soccer PDX Help Homeless and Incarcerated Youth and Adults?
Street Soccer USA brings soccer to homeless youth and adults through coaching and mentor programs. They work with local organizations to build confidence and team happiness in those who are struggling, those who need a way out of poverty and life on the streets. Street Soccer PDX, under the direction of branch founder Adam Lewis, works with the most vulnerable men and women of all ages in homeless shelters and correctional facilities. Please look over our rewards section to see how your support of street seating can also support the work of Street Soccer USA. A future project of the organization is working with homeless mothers in shelters and correctional facilities.
We are building Street Seating outside the Toffee Club on SE 10th in Lower Hawthorne. We will fund the project through an Indigogo campaign. A big part of this campaign is sharing our fundraising proceeds with Street Soccer USA.
