The 34 Ways to Assist Foundation was created with three primary initiatives in mind: The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and healthy living through youth athletics and health and wellness. Devin Harris, starting point guard for the National Basketball Association’s Atlanta Hawks, grants wishes for children with life threatening medical conditions through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, mentors youth and teens through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, and provides a healthy outlet for underprivileged youth through his free basketball camp in Milwaukee as well as League and Playground programs in the Wisconsin area.
The 34 Ways to Assist Foundation works to provide free programs which ensure that children of low-income, at-risk households have activities that promote health and wellness and continuance of education. A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Devin’s primary endeavors center on the Milwaukee, Madison, Atlanta, and Dallas communities. Devin has worked tirelessly with his charities in order to give children hope, guidance, and a safe place to play. Devin’s belief is that he is greatly blessed in so many ways through his career as a professional athlete, and his desire is to give back to these communities he calls home as they have given to him.
