Hope Reins received an urgent request from Maria’s foster parents, Jim and Karen.  They asked for help

Jim is a Virginia police officer, and his unit rescued Maria from a horrific home situation. She’d been starved, physically and sexually abused, and witnessed the brutal murder of her baby brother.  Although Maria is safe now, she drives with Jim 200 miles from Virginia for the free healing services at Hope Reins.  

When she heard Mercy’s tragic story of abuse as a workhorse, Maria’s heart was profoundly stirred. “My first family didn’t take care of me either,” she sadly whispered. 

Maria is a Kairos Kid.

“Kairos” in Greek means “opportune moment.” Over the last two years, we’ve seen an ever-increasing number of applicants like Maria who urgently need your help at this critical moment… today.

Kairos ˈkīräs (Greek) The right or opportune moment

We invite you to learn more about our Kairos Kids and how their courage, along with God’s keen sense of timing, can powerfully redirect pain and grief into hope and healing at the ranch.

Their time for Hope Reins is now.

Many times, these two adorable brothers arrive at the ranch holding hands with their Dad, whose unfaltering love for his boys is evident the minute you meet him. Together, the trio is slowly recovering after losing ‘Mommy’ to an almost 4-year battle with cancer.

The humiliation and pain of severe bullying and sexual assault at school pierced the heart of this young girl, leaving her only an outer shell of crippling anxiety. Building a bridge of trust and hope after a tumultuous past that included a suicide attempt has been of utmost importance during sessions.

Imagine a kindergartner being sex-trafficked. Sarah’s value was based on how much money her parents could acquire for drugs by selling the little girl’s body – and it almost destroyed her life. When Wake County Social Services rescued her, she was living locked in the trunk of the family car.

Everyone has moments of Kairos – when life is overwhelming and time seems altogether motionless.  Suicide, sexual abuse, and terminal illness are just a few of the circumstances that bring our Kairos Kids’ lives to a standstill.


Kairos Kids can’t wait, so we need to be ready.  With your help, we can fund the dedicated ranch staff, one-on-one sessions, and personalized programming that can transform crippling moments into a time of eternal significance.
