Kids Hope USA


Kids Hope USA is a national organization that helps churches change the lives of at-risk children through mentoring relationships. Spending one hour per week to help a child with schoolwork, listen to his or her heart, or play games, has the power to change the trajectory of the child’s life

 Data for students who met with a Kids Hope USA mentor for just one year showed:

65% improved in educational success.

79% improved in socio/emotional competency.

56% improved in attitude toward risky behavior.


The chance for caring adults to provide students with one-on-one attention at school is priceless. Imagine if every elementary school in the country offered students who need a listening ear the chance to be a part of the Kids Hope USA program; what would schools look like? Answer: They would be filled with children who thrive and excel in every aspect of life.

Volunteer Mentors and Prayer Partners are needed!

  • Prayer is the foundation of the ministry as each adult-child relationship has a prayer partner.
  • Training is provided for mentors prior to meeting their child.
  • All resources (games, tips, worksheets and more) are provided weekly.
  • Mentors meet with children on school grounds during school hours.
