One simple thing will make a big difference in the life of an at-risk child: One-on-one, positive attention from a responsible, caring adult.
Kids Hope USA develops one-on-one relationships through the creation of church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk kids in supportive, mentoring relationships. Kids Hope USA mentors spend just one hour per week, reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed.
Bear Valley's Kids Hope USA program mentors children at Liberty Elementary School in Keller ISD. Each mentor also has a Prayer Partner who prayerfully supports the mentoring relationship.
