Ray of Hope leaders use their own life experiences to connect with kids, introducing them to empowering social skills and inspiring principles of faith through stories and relationship. Many of the social and emotional skills – along with the valuable life lessons that we seek to explore with children – depend on consistent mentoring relationships.

From unique arts and craft activities, team building recreation games, creative Thursday theme days, and quality small group time to field trips including ice skating, roller skating, swimming at Lake Samish, visiting Mindport Museum, Birch Bay Waterslides and more, Ray of Hope provides kids who need it most with incredible and memorable opportunities they might not otherwise have a chance to experience.
