StreetSoccer 945 (SS945) recognizes that soccer has a remarkable power to address homelessness, by promoting healthy living, building a community of supportive teammates, and encouraging a constructive use of leisure time.
SS945 participants attend weekly practices, play in local leagues and work with staff to achieve 3, 6, and 12-month personal goals. Each practice follows a curriculum focused on developing key life skills. Players have the opportunity to compete in the Street Soccer USA Cup and to make the national squad for the Homeless World Cup.
