Kids Hope USA Mentoring

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

— Dr. Seuss

There is power in numbers. That’s why the Kids Hope USA Mentoring Program of FUMCFW reaches out to children who need help to beat the odds. When a child has a mentor who cares, it can make all the difference. And when you care a whole awful lot, everything gets better and better. Research shows that students who met with a Kids Hope USA mentor for just one year improved:

  • 65% in educational success
  • 79% in socio/emotional competency
  • 56% in attitude toward risky behavior

Our mentors kick the stats to the curb — one child, one hour, one church, one school at a time.

“The T.A. Sims Elementary community is only 10 – 15 minutes from our church, yet it is a world very different from the one that most of us know,” says Gay Ingram, FUMCFW Kids Hope Coordinator. “Over the past 10 years, many of our caring members, clergy, and staff have stepped up, showed up, and stuck with us to support these endearing children in so many ways. From mentoring and prayers, to special events and holiday treats, to donations and so much more, our church has embraced both the children and the school. As always, the program simply serves as a guide — it is the people who make the difference.”
