Kingdom Cares brings kids together to play basketball and learn what it means to have good character on and off the court. Led by Jake Sullivan, Kingdom Cares offers unique development opportunities to over 300 young people each year. The organization develops elite basketball players in an environment of integrative inclusion.
Kingdom Hoops teams include players from 3-5 different schools, representing more than 50 Iowa communities. Together they learn to embrace each other’s differences. They demonstrate responsibility, citizenship, and caring through the Kingdom Hoops food program, which provides dinner for over 40 children four times each week. Their Beyond Ball program helps Des Moines inner city youth with athletic scholarships, tutoring, and mentoring.
The programs of Kingdom Cares continue to develop some of Iowa’s most elite young basketball players. But more importantly, they are developing young men and women of character who will represent Iowa with tremendous pride for years to come.
