Hope for Kids

2016 was an amazing year for Hope for Kids--help and hope was brought to hundreds of children in need this year, enabled by over a hundred of our faithful volunteers and three new full-time staff members. God provided for us in so many unmistakable ways this year as He proved that He “will never forget the needy, and the hope of the afflicted will never perish” (Psalm 9:18).

This year, our Club Hope program, along with our Event Hope and Mentor Hope programs, provided us with our greatest opportunity to build relationships with the families of Springfield. Between sixty-five and ninety children were invested in each month as they spent time with our volunteers, enjoyed a delicious lunch, and most importantly, learned about the Savior who loves them. Our Impact Hope program equipped twelve teens to share God’s love through week-long clubs in Springfield neighborhoods this summer, which connected us with many new children. We also partnered with Angel Tree; our volunteers and staff delivered presents to the children of incarcerated parents and spread hope to many families this Christmas.

As we look forward to 2017, we are excited to focus on Connect Hope, which is the process of building genuine relationships between HFK events by connecting our volunteers and staff to the children and families we serve. This year holds many exciting new opportunities for our volunteers and supporters to connect with the kids we serve.
