Service Provider in Washington, D.C.
Based in Washington DC, and winners of 13 domestic and international trophies, D.C. United is one of the most successful team in United States soccer history. Extreme inequality of opportunity exists for school children in Washington, D.C. As the cityÕs major league soccer team, D.C. United has an interest in growing the sport of soccer and creating a vibrant, healthy community. To help end this inequality of opportunity, D.C. United partners with local nonprofit DC SCORES on its local, free, school-based soccer leagues for low income children. The partnership leverages each organization's core expertiseÑspecifically D.C. UnitedÕs soccer resources and expertise as well as DC ScoresÕ operational capability and deep community ties. In the first year of the partnership, they increased their reach from a few hundred to more than 2,000 children. DC SCORES and D.C. United have done more together in the first months of this partnership than either could do alone.
