Kids Hope USA
Kids Hope USA is the catalyst for an expanding network of church/school partnerships. These partnerships take on the enormous challenge of kids at risk—One Child, One Hour, One Church, One School at a time—through one-on-one mentoring relationships.
St. Olaf's property is immediately adjacent to Krug Elementary, our designated Kids Hope school. Through Kids Hope, we are building relationships that make a huge difference in the lives of at-risk kids from right in our neighborhood. As Krug is a non-bussing school, almost all of the 300+ students who attend live within walking distance to the school, and therefore, within walking distance of our church, as well.
Our Kids Hope USA Coordinator is Ruth Isiminger.
