Our Impact

When I was thirteen, MetroLacrosse changed me by giving me the opportunity to learn how to be a leader on and off the lacrosse field. I have learned how to solve problems both individually and cooperatively (like communicating in ways other than just using my voice), how to respect and learn from the people around me including my peers and mentors, how to play on a team of players who are my opponents during the season, and maybe most importantly for me, how to allow other’s voices to be heard.

The Homeless Campership Fund greatly impacts the lives of the children and families we serve. Attending camp provides the children with an opportunity to participate in a safe, educational, and fun experience that allows them to enjoy being children, free from the worries that accompany living in a domestic shelter environment.
