Who We Are and What We Do

Hope for Kids Geauga is a 501(C)(3) volunteer board that raises funds to bring hope back into the lives of children.  Our organization cares passionately about meeting the needs of children whose lives have been disrupted and disadvantaged due to family issues of addiction, mental health, domestic violence and sexual abuse. The enrichment and growth activities that would otherwise be unavailable to these children are critical to reducing the chaos, stress and trauma; circumstances beyond their control.

Hope for Kids currently has formal agreements with four agencies to fund the needs of abused/neglected children involved in the court system or children identified as at-risk and served by Geauga County agencies with no court involvement.

Our goal is to improve children’s self-esteem, self-confidence, academics and development by providing positive experiences that can make a life-long difference. Some of these activities include:

  • Summer camps, sports fees and uniforms, YMCA memberships, art, music, horseback riding classes, etc.
  • Educational opportunities such as: tutoring, class trips, summer classes, computer programs for special needs, and other extracurricular activities.

 

Additional funds will allow us to reach more children through other child serving agencies. Please donate now.
