Four years ago, Lawrence Cann, a former nationally ranked college soccer player, founded Street Soccer USA, an organization that empowers the homeless by giving them both a new perspective on the way they see themselves and a welcome break from daily problems.

In this clip, a Street Soccer squad from New York faces off with a rival team of white-collar workers—and there’s a lot more at stake than just winning or losing.

Check out The New York Times video on them here.

For more about Street Soccer USA, visit the organization’s blog here.
