Kara joined Kids Hope USA in July 2018 as the Director of Development. Her passion to share and spread the mission of KHUSA, One Child. One Hour. One School. One Church., fuels her work and focuses her efforts to gather community leaders, pastors, donors, and mentors, around each student mentored through Kids Hope USA. Before coming to KHUSA, Kara was the Development Director at Mercy House, a non-profit based in Orange County, California. She is excited to continue connecting individual donors, corporate partners, and local foundations to the heartbeat of what we do: show up and change the life of one child, one hour at a time.
Kara lives in Holland, MI with her husband Steven, and daughter, Peyton.
