Kerrie Bryant, Executive Director kerrie@hopekids.org, (816) 372-0311

Kerrie is a Texas native who first served as a volunteer for the HopeKids North Texas chapter. After eight years in professional sports at the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys, Kerrie felt she was being called to do more to help others. When Kansas City was chosen as a new location for HopeKids, Kerrie JUMPED at the opportunity to serve as the Executive Director and help bring hope to families in KC. 

Kerrie attended Tarleton State University where she was a member of the coed cheer team while earning a Masters in Business Management and Leadership and a Bachelor of Business Administrative Systems. Kerrie and her fiance, Ray, love to travel, play tennis, fish, go to the lake, or do anything outdoors! Kerrie always has a smile on her face and is excited to share her passion for helping others and love for the Lord with the greater Kansas City area. 

Lauren Cunningham, Program Manager lauren@hopekids.org, (913) 633-8331

Lauren graduated from Kansas State University in 2004 and married her husband, Tyler, shortly after. They moved to Cedar Falls, Iowa, where Lauren started her career in marketing and public relations. A few years later, Lauren and Tyler returned to Kansas City where she began non-profit event planning work at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). In her 8 years with JDRF, Lauren served many roles from managing events such as the Walk to Cure Diabetes and the Dream Gala, to fundraising and family outreach. 

Lauren spends her free time with her husband and two young kiddos, Nora and Chase. Their favorite things to do in Kansas City include visiting the zoo, swimming, frequenting Chick-fil-A, and playing at almost any park in the city. With two growing children, Lauren and Tyler find themselves constantly on the go! Lauren is excited to introduce her family to HopeKids and to be part of all God is going to do in the Kansas City chapter.
