  • provide robust and consistent support to our growing network of mentoring programs in West Michigan that will reach up to 1,780 students in 2024, totaling an estimated 56,960 hours of one-on-one mentoring to West Michigan students needing hope most!
  • support new West Michigan church partners as they launch their programs
  • strengthen and expand the Kids Hope USA mentoring movement across West Michigan through cultivating growth in existing programs and searching for new partners to operate mentoring programs.





One-on-one Kids Hope USA mentoring relationships have been making a life-changing impact and influencing a culture of community support in Kent County and the surrounding areas for nearly 30 years.

Kids Hope USA mentors commit to spending one hour every week for at least one school year to invest in the lives of children needing hope, and we know and have seen the transformational impact made when a community embraces and supports their neighborhood school.

At Kids Hope USA, we are committed to coming alongside and equipping our communities with the tools they need to effectively embrace the children, teachers, staff, and families of their neighborhood school through a proven and established school-based mentoring program.

Your investment helps make relationships happen.
