“This is a real, tangible change that is brought about by the passionate people at the Homeless World Cup. “
Jeb Brovsky, from Colorado, is a defender for the Major League Soccer team New York City FC, which played its inaugural match in early 2015. Brovsky had previously signed for Vancouver Whitecaps FC in 2011 and played for Montreal Impact. While studying at the University of Notre Dame, Jeb founded Peace Pandemic—a non-profit which aims to end violence against women by empowering boys and girls through football.
Of the Homeless World Cup, Borvsky says: “I support the Homeless World Cup because I truly believe in the organisation and its mission. I first was exposed to the organisation while working with the leaders and teams in Vancouver. My good friends, Adam Favel and Chandrima Chatterjee, put me in contact with the organisation and I got to see first-hand the tangible impact on individual lives this organisation has. Listening to the players on the Canadian Homeless World Cup team and the Street Soccer Philly team who are all changing their lives through football just inspired me even more.”
