More than 48-thousand children in Charlotte live at or below the poverty level, and basics such as food, shelter, and healthcare are sometimes hard to come by. So it won’t surprise you that these same students have a very limited access to youth sports, where they could learn the skills and discipline that so many parents rely on to help their kids learn and grow.
Soccer FC is trying to change that. The Soccer Foundation of Charlotte provides access to these same learning opportunities through the game of soccer in under-served communities. Katie Phillips of Soccer FC is our guest on Charlotte Real Estate Talk to tell us all about this program that helps kids grow while having a ball.
