Kobe Bryant is not only a beast on the court, but apparently he will be stepping up his philanthropic game as well.

Today, Bryant will announce that he and his wife are starting the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation, a charity that aims to fight homelessness.

According to a press statement, the foundation will work to “reduce homelessness, create permanent housing and provide educational and career resources, which will include raising funds, improving services and working in conjunction with My Friend’s Place.”

My Friend’s Place is a Los Angeles-based charity that provides emergency services to over 1,600 people every year. With the Bryants’ assistance, they hope to reach even more.

Kudos to Kobe and Vanessa for tackling such an important issue!
