Nine inspirational girls from across DC will represent the nation on and off the field at this year's Street Child World Cup in Moscow, Russia. Each of the girls has experienced or been at risk of experiencing homelessness and has demonstrated leadership qualities alongside their athletic ability. On their return, they will speak to Congress about the urgent issue of 4 million young Americans facing homelessness each year. Their voices matter.

"I'm honored to support Girls USA Team at the Street Child World Cup 2018. They will proudly represent our nation, harnessing their love of soccer to raise awareness and dialogue for US youth at risk of homelessness. Their voices matter. Congratulations to America SCORES and the National Network for Youth for partnering to give these girls the platform they truly deserve."
