Each year we partner with San Diego County Youth Football Teams to give need-based grants to some of their athletes.  This grant covers the cost of the athlete participating in the organization. This is a joint effort with Rudolph A. Johnson III, CEO of Neighborhood House Association and the Phi Omicron and Beta Nu Nu Chapters of The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
