Mission Hope for Kids is a highly effective non-profit meeting a critical need in Hardin County, Kentucky. It is changing lives and the future of an entire generation in the heartland of Kentucky. The purpose of the organization is to reach students from low-income families and offer them a weekly sanctuary, a place where they can come as young as kindergarten and continue to receive services through high school. Because the program has multiple facets, students are able to have educational, spiritual, physical and emotional needs addressed by caring mentors. This phenomenal volunteer team provides an essential service to deserving and thankful children who will be better for their investment.
