The JB Brown Fund established a Sports Scholarship program in 2013, a program to help families in USA Properties communities with the cost of their children to participate in school and community sports, such as a Little League or Pop Warner. The Sports Fund assists with registration fees, equipment and other costs connected to participation. LifeSTEPS social workers and after-school program coordinators identify families in need of the assistance. Sports build positive character traits, develops leadership skills and establishes teamwork, qualities that will service children – and their community – for a lifetime.
