The world is used to expecting greatness from Serena and Venus Williams on the tennis court, but the sisters are changing up their game. The Williams have opened the Yetunde Price Resource Center in their hometown of Compton, California.

The community service center is named for their older sister who was killed by gun violence in 2003. It is the first endeavor under the Williams Sister Fund, an organization designed to support the sisters’ philanthropic efforts to fight gun violence.

            “The resource center will be able to map all of the resources in and around the Compton community while providing customized assistance that will be a vital asset to improving our ability to service our youth, adults and families,” said Mayor Aja Brown.
