San Diego State women’s basketball assistant coach Ciara Carl had a vision to inspire youth and give back to the next generation.

Last fall, that vision became a reality when Carl started her own nonprofit: Unchained.

The organization’s mission serves to touch young lives and bring hope for those who have dreams.

In its first year of existence, Unchained partnered with the Monarch School located near downtown San Diego.

Monarch is a K-12 school that hosts children impacted by homelessness.
