Our Work With Kids

The Maurice Lucas Foundation teaches kids lessons they can use to help them realize their dreams. Our academies show the importance of hard work, respect and leadership both in the classroom and on the court.

Kids in our programs learn the importance of leadership, goal setting, hard work, respect, and integrity in all aspects of life.

Honoring Maurice Lucas

ML_Home_page_pic.jpgThe number 20 hangs in the rafters of The Rose Garden, home to the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers, honoring a great man. Maurice Lucas had a storied 14-year career in professional basketball, but off the court is where Maurice built his legacy. Maurice was truly a pillar in the Portland, Oregon community he called home. He touched the lives of many through his giving ways. Maurice passed away on October 31, 2010 at the age of 58.

Today, the Maurice Lucas Foundation carries on his legacy by working with youth to help them realize their individual potential.
