Kicking It Forward
When Steve’s marriage ended two and a half years ago, he spiraled into a severe depression that lost him his job, his relationship with his kids, and ultimately his home. At the shelter, he was reluctant to play soccer but Bill convinced him to at least come out and watch. Now, not only is he a committed “ball boy” assisting the players on the sidelines, he works with the social enterprise laundry business.
“Street Soccer helps because your mind’s active. You’re out there. And you look forward to those games. Everybody that’s involved—Bill, Paul, Ed, John—are there to encourage you. They come up to you and call you by name. ‘Hi, Steve. How are you doing? Anything we can do for you?’ It just makes you feel like there’s a reason to live again. Street Soccer is, in my books, AOK.” — Steve
