About Us

Inspire Hope is a 501(c)3 organization that serves children and families through social emotional learning, literacy programs and community resources.

The organization began as a community initiative to encourage change and has grown to serve families, children and others within Cuyahoga County. We hope you'll join us in inspiring hope and empowering our community!

Calm Kids Connection Groups 

Connection groups are a fun, safe place for children ages 6 - 12 to learn and practice social skills with their peers. Children will learn to recognize and regulate their emotions through games, skits, discussions, mindfulness activities and creative expression.

Topics Include:

- Identifying Emotions
- Self Esteem
- Kindness
- Coping Skills
- Confidence
- Gratitude
- Teamwork
- Respect

We would love to bring our programming to the students at your school, community center, afterschool program etc. Our programming can occur in school and during out of school time hours.

The duration and topics of programming are customizable to your organization's needs. If you or your organization is interested in partnering with Inspire Hope, please contact us.

Creative Kids Literacy Program

Students will:
- Practice their writing skills by creating fiction and nonfiction stories.
- Practice their phonics, reading and comprehension skills by reading aloud as a group.
- Practice spelling skills and participate in a spelling bee.
