Organization mentors at-risk youth

Joe Eriquez, president and CEO for Heart for the City speaks about the many programs it has to help youth in the valley.

We featured a Cronkite News story on how kids find mental strength through their sports program.

Eriquez also talks about how a business program that helps kids learn basic business skills and find jobs as well as a community garden where they grow produce.

He explains how Heart for the City is impacting the lives of children and the positive impact the organization’s programs have on everyone who shows up to participate. No one is turned away.
