Kids Hope USA
Kids Hope USA builds caring relationships… one child, one hour, one church, one school.
Milwood Community Church is across the street from Milwood Elementary School and has a strong connection with them. By connecting church members as mentors to elementary students, we bring the hope and love of Jesus into their lives, one child at a time.
H: Helping to meet the emotional, social and academic needs of at-risk children by giving them a one-to-one relationship with a Mentor from our church.
O: Owned by our church. This is a great ministry to children and families in our neighborhood.
P: Prayer is the foundation for our work. A dedicated prayer partner from our church prays for each adult-child relationship.
E: Elementary school children are our focus. They need mentoring most because they are at that critical time when values are formed, self-esteem is developed and critical academic skills must be acquired.
Milwood Community Church sponsors a Weekend Food Pack Program for children at Milwood Elementary whose homes are unable to provide regular meals. We purchase pre-packaged nutritional food from Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes, and volunteers pack it into the backpacks of hungry children each week. More Info
