Hoops Express is a nonprofit 501C(3), community-based organization that provides an array of supportive services to at-risk, school aged youths in the Newburgh (Orange County), N.Y. area. Founded in 1998 and formally incorporated in November 2000, Hoops Express was established to promote positive individual development for at-risk youths through the provision of educational, athletic and cultural programs. Through the designs of these programs we raise academic performance, build leadership skills, and improve the socialization skills and physical health of program participants.
