Kids At Hope

Kids at Hope is an international organization devoted to the study, research, and application of hope. Kids at Hope offers the tools necessary to shift our cultural framework and view kids and families differently-through the lens of hope rather than through the lens of risk. This is a community-wide initiative which means we are promoting this cultural shift throughout Wood County.

Come learn to Believe, Connect, and Time Travel with Rick Miller, Founder of Kids at Hope and Professor of Practice/Clinical Director, Arizona State University Center for theAdvanced Study and Practice of Hope.

Wood County Launch date: November 18, 2020 from 1-4pm
