Posted on May 4, 2009
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.

Check out The New York Times video on them here.
