Check out our new video below highlighting a few of the many kids whose lives we are working to improve through access to sports equipment and mentorship.


Hoops with Heart was founded and is run by passionate, dedicated teens who seek to empower disadvantaged children in Los Angeles. We raise funds to donate sports equipment and provide mentoring by scholar-athletes to underserved youth attending local after-school programs. Pairing donations with mentoring gives us the unique opportunity to make one-on-one connections with children who live in communities surrounded by poverty, crime, and drugs. While we help kids build self-esteem and fitness, our goal is to provide exposure to positive activities, influences, and possibilities for their futures.
