At Athletes for Change (AFC), we believe that teens in crisis deserve a loving, supportive environment where they can benefit from the guidance of caring professionals in a home-like setting. In addition to licensed therapists and counselors, AFC has the commitment from the professional athletic community to mentor our students and act as positive role models. Athletes for Change, was started by former NFL Philadelphia Eagles football player Dennis DeVaughn and his wife Maureen to bring together the professional sports community to improve the lives of troubled teens in the juvenile system.
