Kids Hope


Debbie Cowgill continues in the position of Director for the school year 2017-2018.  She is excited to be back enabling prospective mentors to match up with children in the Coloma elementary schools!  Coloma Elementary's new principal and Debbie have already met and are looking forward to working together to meet the needs of Kids Hope children.

Throughout the school year begins, Debbie Cowgill is busily matching adults with Coloma elementary children, to mentor and work with them on a weekly basis.  It's one adult to one child.  As the mentor gets to know his or her "mentee", weekly conversations may be on school work, personal relationships, the weather, friends, and maybe a game or two is worked in too.  The aim is to show support for the child, and help him or her in the skills needed to be a better student and perhaps a better friend, as well.  Prayer partners are also needed, to pray for the relationship between mentor and mentee.  

If you would like to volunteer as a mentor, a prayer partner, or support for one of the seasonal Kids Hope parties during the school year, please contact Debbie using the Contact Us button located at the upper right of this page.
