Overview


Mission Statement

To promote healthy lifestyles in children, families, and communities by addressing medical, nutritional, social, economic and behavioral issues in a comprehensive, compassionate, and empowering manner.


Background Statement

Serving Kids Hope is dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles in children, families, and communities by addressing medical, nutritional, social, economic, and behavioral issues in a comprehensive, compassionate, and empowering manner. SKHope was founded in 2002 as a pilot program of the Children and Families Commission of Orange County to address the prevalence of obesity and related health conditions in young children. Today, SKHope supports and funds projects that reach more than 4,000 underserved families per year. We support and target low-income areas in Orange County, and fund programs that offer a variety of intervention tactics for the county’s most severe obesity cases, including the following programs:

-          Health Club: A specialized clinical care program to address the root causes of obesity, utilizing a multidisciplinary team including a Pediatrician, Registered Dietitian, Case Manager, and Fitness Instructor.

-          Fit Club: An after-school/summer program for overweight and obese children ages 4-18, incorporating age-appropriate physical activity, nutrition education, and cooking demonstrations.

-          Fit Kid Squad: In our newest program, Fit Kid Squad is a group of girls or boys who are dedicated to having a healthy heart through nutrition, exercise and helping others. 

-          Education Programs: For parents and providers on health and weight management issues.

Through these programs, we support and help children stop the increase of excessive weight gain, decrease their Body Mass Index (BMI) percentile, improve family feeding dynamics, increase physical fitness levels, and educate about proper nutrition and health issues.


Impact Statement

SKHope supports programs that served over 4,000 children and families. Some of the supported/funded programs include Health Club, Fit Club, Fit Kid Squad, and Educational Classes/Provider Trainings. Overall, a high majority of the kids in our Fit Club program improved their nutritional knowledge and all fitness tests that we did this summer. We provided them with fun games, while exercising at the same time. The kids did a great job learning how to work together through various drills and activities and showed great support for one another through the entire program. We were also able to provide each child with a healthy lunch prior to the program as well as snack to end through a supporting organization, Second Harvest. We expanded our services in Santa Ana and served more families than ever before. The past couple years we began serving families in South County in San Juan Capistrano and continue to do so. In the past we have served Costa Mesa as well as Huntington Beach. In the coming year, we hope to continue to make a meaningful impact on our county's most underserved and in-need families to help treat childhood obesity. We plan to continue treating obesity at our main site in Santa Ana and San Juan Capistrano as well as throughout Orange County and would like to expand to even more cities and move into a larger clinic space.

Needs Statement

1. Finances - as with many nonprofits, funding is our most pressing need in order for us to serve more and successfully run our programs.
2. General operations - because we have a multidisciplinary team, multiple clinic locations, and a host of different programs serving the community, funding for general operations is a big priority.
3. Indirect expenses - these necessary expenses (including bookkeeping, grant writing, operations,) are necessary to running our programs daily, but are often not funded by grants, and thus a pressing need.
4. Programs - In order to reach more children and families each year, we hope to consistently grow our programs.
5. Clinic space - we have already outgrown our clinic at the Santa Ana Family YMCA and plan to open another, bigger clinic to reach even more children and families in Orange County.

Programs


Health Club

SKHope support programs that approach diagnosis, treatment, and prevention with a multidisciplinary team, providing direct patient care and individual treatment programs that are tailored to each child's needs. The multidisciplinary team is comprised of a Pediatrician / Medical Director, Registered Dietitian, Case Manager, and Fitness Instructors. The programs treat the most severe cases of obesity and "Failure to Thrive," a condition referring to children with delayed growth and development due to improper nutrition and an inability to maintain a healthy weight.

Health Club works to address the root causes of overweight and obesity, rather than just the symptoms, to ensure that the entire family is stronger and healthier. The overall intervention is the same for both overweight children and those with Failure to Thrive:
  1. Discuss the psychology of feeding
  2. Teach families how to improve their nutrition
  3. Promote increased physical activity
  4. Assess and treat any medical or psychological comorbidities
SKHope helps to see over 115 children each month in the Health Club program and is currently operating at Santa Ana Family YMCA in Santa Ana, CA, and San Juan Pediatrics in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
Budget  $600,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Early Intervention & Prevention
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Families At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  For short-term success, we plan to increase patients and family's nutrition knowledge and ability to choose healthy foods. We also aim to increase their ability to exercise and find ways to be more physically active.
Program Long-Term Success  We plan to achieve the following outcomes: Health Club participants will stop the increase of excessive weight gain in order to begin normal growth. Once weight gain is under control, 50% of patients will decrease their BMI and labs will normalize over time.
Program Success Monitored By 

Our programs are regularly evaluated and have been very successful. Health Club provides assessment followed by the creation of individualized patient care plans, with effectiveness measured by changes in overweight/obesity, changes in BMI, as well as pre/post labs and pre/post surveys. Results include improvement of physical ailments as indicated by clinical records, test results, and intake questionnaires.

Examples of Program Success  With the nutrition counseling and fitness training provided by our multidisciplinary team at medical visits, 79.5% of overweight or obese patients improved their Body Mass Index (BMI) percentile as of our latest evaluation done in June 2014. 

Fit Club

This after-school program, supported by SKHope, was designed specifically for low-income children ages 4-18 who have continued to gain excess weight even while receiving treatment. Fit ClubTM runs throughout the year and integrates physical activity, nutrition education, and healthy cooking classes/demonstrations for youth who are at risk for childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes.

We collaborate with Newport-Mesa Unified and Santa Ana Unified to recruit students for the program. In addition, there are often many times  referrals are recieved from CalOptima for the county's most severe childhood obesity cases, which need comprehensive family support. An average of 30 children participate in each afternoon session, and we have reached over 1,000 children since the program's inception in 2009. Fit Club is currently held at the Santa Ana Family YMCA as well as REA Elementary School in Costa Mesa.
Budget  $500,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Early Intervention & Prevention
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) At-Risk Populations Families
Program Short-Term Success  Short term success includes increasing nutritional knowledge, increasing physical activity ability, and increasing ability to choose healthy foods.
Program Long-Term Success 
Through this program, we expect that 60% of overweight/obese children will decrease BMI, as measured by height and weight measurements, 50% will improve physical fitness levels, as measured by FitnessGram tests in sit-ups, mile run, sit-and-reach, and push-ups, and 50% will show statistically significant increases in nutrition and health knowledge, as measured by a nutrition knowledge test, leading to greatly increased health overall. 
Program Success Monitored By 

Fit Club™ achievements are measured through participant BMI, physical fitness tests, and nutritional knowledge. Through this program, we expect that 60% of overweight/obese children will decrease BMI, as measured by height and weight measurements, 50% will improve physical fitness levels, as measured by FitnessGram tests in sit-ups, mile run, sit-and-reach, and push-ups, and 50% will show statistically significant increases in nutrition and health knowledge, as measured by a nutrition knowledge test, leading to greatly increased health overall.

Examples of Program Success 
Our 2010 Fit ClubTMsummer program had amazing results, as 87% of children decreased their Body Mass Index (BMI), 15.3% of overweight/obese children decreased their BMI category, and improvements in fitness scores were statistically significant across all measures. Most recently, during the 2013-2014 school year, 93.3% of children improved their BMI percentile and significant improvements were found in fitness including sit-ups, pushups, and sit-and-reach.

Fit Kid Squad

This program is a troop of children dedicated to having a healthy heart through nutrition, exercise and helping others.

 Currently there are two troops in the NMUSD with a total of 20 children. These kids wear their hearts on their sleeves and continue to make a huge difference helping in the community. 

Budget  $5,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other Extracurricular Activities
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Program Short-Term Success  In the next two years our goal is to continue with the troops we have in place right now and implement a couple more opportunities for schools to participate in the program in Orange County.
Program Long-Term Success  Serving Kids Hope is hoping to make this program duplicable at all schools in and around Orange County.  
 
Program Success Monitored By  This is our third year running this program and the response we have had from all the participants has been overwhelming. The feedback from both parents and children we have received was and is extremely positive in regards to how the program is run and we continue to have growth within the program each year.

Collaborations

SKHope coordinates a host of community partnerships in order to provide easy access and comprehensive services to our clients. Our partners financially support our programs, provide client referrals, open their offices and clinic spaces to allow us to provide services throughout the County, provide free medical/dental screenings for clients, donate products and grocery vouchers for clients, rely on us for after-school programs, provide marketing and consulting services, host preschool fieldtrips, and support our administrative and back-office needs. Without the help and collaboration of these community partners, we would not be able to provide the comprehensive and highly personalized services that we are able to offer low-income families.
