SpringSpirit used as growing experience for kids in Spring Branch

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- For the past decade, SpringSpirit has been a place for children to live, grow and learn.

Jay Davis is the COO of SpringSpirit and said the organization is used to serve the under-served.

Davis said they use sports to initially attract the kids, while then providing them with education and mentor programs.

SpringSpirit offers soccer, baseball and softball for kids 3-18.

Breanna Garcia joined SpringSpirit as a high school sophomore, wanting to learn about softball.

It all worked out for Garcia. She will be headed to Pine Manor College later in August to try out to be a pitcher.

Garcia said SpringSpirit helped the neighborhood, bringing everyone closer together and being an escape from other problems.

Sergio Razo played soccer at SpringSpirit and recently graduated from Texas A&M. He has now returned to SpringSpirit as a volunteer.

"It makes me feel like I'm accomplishing stuff here, making an impact on kids, and that's exactly what I wanted to do," Garcia said.
