Empowering Dreams: Nancy Lieberman Charities Dream Courts™ and Sport Court

- May 31, 2024

Basketball is more than just a game; it's a pathway to empowerment, confidence, and community for children all over the world. Nancy Lieberman Charities with its Dream Court™ program and Sport Court are a testament to this belief, aiming to make basketball accessible to kids while providing a safe environment for them to play and grow.

Nancy Lieberman Charities is dedicated to establishing outdoor basketball courts known as "Dream Courts" in multiple cities across the nation. To date Nancy Lieberman Charities has installed 128 Dream Courts across the United State. This initiative is centered on providing access to basketball for children, offering them an avenue for recreation, a secure space to engage in play, an opportunity to foster social interactions, and a platform to cultivate essential values of teamwork and sportsmanship.

The communities that have embraced Dream Courts have reported notable impacts, including decreased crime and gang-related activities, improved relationships and trust with local law enforcement, and heightened engagement in health and wellness activities. Through Dream Courts, Nancy Lieberman Charities actively works to bridge gaps and cultivate thriving communities. Dream Courts also service as an educational pop-up classroom where kids learn through core programs offered on Dream Courts: STEM Hoops, Civic Engagement, Career Readiness and Kid & Cops.


"In life, partnerships matter, and Nancy Lieberman Charities and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America is powerful for kids." 45 new Dream Courts will be opened together in the next 5 years.

We are a Super Team of hope and action" - Nancy Lieberman
