our mission:

The Eric Matthews Foundation was organized for the purpose of serving our youth through sports. Eric Matthews Foundation mentoring program is about developing trust, building relationships, increased learning and exposing the children to opportunities that they might not otherwise be afforded. Aspects of each of these factors can be found and are present in everything that we do whether it’s exposure to influential people, field trips, sports activities, the importance of education and “ down to earth” honest advice. Mentoring actually affects each individual person can be different; however the impact can be far reaching and the benefits can span a life time. We believe this will build a community to help create a safer and more nurturing and supportive environment. Our community outreach services are dedicated to putting this mission into action by providing a full range of charitable, human service, and community development activities.
