The Lions for Hope Sports Complex


To build a premier sports complex for the youth of Chicago’s North Lawndale and East Garfield Park communities. Through rugby and other sports, this Lions for Hope Complex will extend life opportunities for the children and young adults in this area to build their social capital. This facility will be considered a safe haven for those looking to grow and thrive within one of the most volatile areas of the US.


The Lions for Hope Sports Complex will provide a safe place for the community to gather. Athletic fields will provide at-risk children the opportunity to participate in a variety of sports and extracurricular activities within their own community. Athletics and education come together by forming partnerships with local schools and community organizations to provide mentoring programs that encourage children to stay in school.
