The Mission: To encourage and inspire hope and dreams for all children in Owen Sound, especially those in low-income families, by providing inspirational experiences and nurturing personal relationships, one child at a time.
KIOS gratefully acknowledges City Kidz and their 20 years of ministry to children in Hamilton. Their example and practical guidance has played a significant role in the formative development of the KIOS program, and from whom we have borrowed many ideas and concepts.
KIOS is a free 90 minute program for children ages 6 & up (as of September 1st), on selected Saturdays September through May, at The Salvation Army Owen Sound Community Church, 365 14th Street West. Space is limited and all children must be pre-registered.
The program combines the following four ingredients with lots and lots of fun!
• To inspire children to dream big and to rise above their circumstances.
• To instill Biblically based values and teach children to do the right thing.
• To provide new experiences and environments that inspire kids to unlimited possibilities.
• To provide positive role models that build relationships with every child.
• To empower youth to be role models and provide opportunities to lead.
