Santa Rita

The partnership with Kids Hope, USA, Christ Church Midland and Santa Rita Elementary School was started in mid-spring of 2011 with 17 Mentors and students. After a period of training each mentor spent 1 hour per week with the student in various activities consisting of creative play, outside play and some academic work. The goal was to develop a meaningful relationship with the student that reflected Jesus’ love as exemplified through the mentor. The program was well received, especially in light of the of the few weeks remaining in the school spring semester. This fall we resumed our mentoring program with 48 mentors and students. We were joined by Holy Cross Lutheran Church with six mentors from their congregation including their Senior Pastor.
