one child, one hour, one church, one school.

CHILDREN: because every child matters
RELATIONSHIPS: because love is only possible person to person
FAITHFULNESS: because if I say I will, I will.
PRAYER: because it is our language of hope.
Why is KIDS HOPE USA Needed?
Many U.S. children are at-risk
· Churches want to reach and love these children but they don't know how
· Principals and teachers, parents and students are asking for it
What is KIDS HOPE USA ? KIDS HOPE USA churches 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 relationship with a mentor from our church
O: Owned by our church. This is our ministry to children and families in our neighborhood.
P: Prayer is the foundation for our work. A behind-the-scenes prayer partner from our church prays for each adult-child relationship.
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 critical academic skills must be acquired.
