For more than 10 years, Engedi has partnered with Kids Hope USA and Waukazoo Elementary School by sending adult mentors to develop supportive, one-on-one relationships with at-risk students. While our Kids Hope mentors are trained to help meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of these children, mostly they’re there to be their friend, play with them, and listen to them. Mentors commit to spending one lunch hour a week during the school year with their assigned student.

If you’d like to become a mentor, a prayer partner, or get involved behind the scenes by becoming part of the Kids Hope focus team, contact LuAnn Kern (
