One Child - One Hour - One Church

WE BELIEVE that when a child feels loved and valued, they are better able to learn, grow and succeed. Kids Hope USA is a one-on-one partnership between churches and schools. These partnerships take on the enormous challenge of kids at risk—One Child, One Hour, One Church, One School at a time—through one-on-one mentoring relationships.

We Believe...

  1. Every student has a future worth fighting for.

  2. Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.

  3. Never assume a kid knows they’re awesome. Remind them all the time.

There is a desperate need among America’s at-risk children to be the “one-and-only” in the life of a caring adult. This need for love can only be met one child at a time. You can do something real, and be that one caring adult. So when your Kids Hope USA child asks, “How many other children do you see at my school?” you can say, “I’m here, just for you.” When kids feel loved and valued, they are better able to learn, grow and succeed.
