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, Jesus-with-skin-on relationship with a mentor from our church
O: Owned by First Christian Church. This is our ministry to children and families in our neighborhood.
P: Prayer is the foundation to 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 because they are at a critical time when values are formed, self-esteem is developed and academic skills must be acquired.
