In the spring of 2015, Hillside started a partnership with a national mentoring organization called Kids HOPE USA. This ministry partners Hillside adults with students from Freedom Elementary just a short distance from the church.

This fall we hope to expand the number of mentors we are sending into the school each week.
Kids HOPE USA is a real chance to make a real difference. Not just in the lives of at-risk children. Not just in the lives of the mentors who witness real transformation in the children they help. Not just for the schools, whose burdens are lighter because of the work Kids HOPE USA does. But rather for entire communities whose connections become stronger. Their futures are brighter and their children are better equipped to succeed in their own lives and lift up those around them. All because someone believed in them and helped them believe in themselves. When you change a life, it’s no small change.
