The mission of KIDS HOPE USA churches is to give hope to children in public elementary schools through a relationship with a caring church member.
H: Helping to meet the emotional, social and academic needs of at-risk children by giving them a one-to-one, Jesus-with-skin-on relationship with a mentor from our church. The Kid's Hope mentor meets once a week during the school day during the school year with their child.
O: Owned by our church. This is our ministry to children and families in our neighborhood. Our school is East Elementary in Grandville.
P: Prayer is the foundation for our work. Each adult-child relationship is wrapped in prayer by a behind-the scenes Prayer Partner from our church.
E: Elementary school children are our focus. They need mentoring most because they are at that critical time when values are formed, self-esteem is developed and academic skills must be acquired. We will start the week of October 5. A training meeting will be in September.
