OUR VISION

To bring the hope of the Gospel to students of downtown Augusta and encourage flourishing through education initiatives, personal relationships, and Bible-centered teaching.

OUR HISTORY

In 2010, Hope for Augusta grew out of a bible study for children in the downtown Augusta neighborhood. Rick Keuroglian, one of the founders, and First Presbyterian Church recruited staff to build the organization with tutoring, mentorship and art program impacting students from grades K-12.

What people are saying

Judge David Watkins

State Court Judge

“Hope for Augusta represents to me an embodiment of Christianity with its sleeves rolled up. They act as good neighbors, especially with the kids. They go in and help them to learn those skills, those virtues, those tools that in the end make it less likely that they will come and see me.”

Sarah Graybeal

Arrow Volunteer

"It is such a blessing to be a part of planting seeds of truth in the lives of these children, to watch them explore their God given creativity and create with pride, knowing that doing so can bring Glory to God."

Laryssa Nilsen

Reaching Higher Volunteer

"Volunteering with Hope for Augusta is one of the highlights of my week. Hope for Augusta is a phenomenal organization with a big dream- they see the needs, they get to work and they bring Christ to our city and I am very thankful that I get to join them."

Hope For Augusta could not fulfill our mission without the collaboration of these valued partners!
