About The Founder

KINGS OF HOPE, Inc. was founded in 2020 by J. Scott, a single father from Charleston, South Carolina. After continuous court hearings and being completely mistreated by the courts, J. Scott was finally awarded full custody of his son on April 1, 2015. At the time, J. Scott was 21 years old and his son was 19 months old. After obtaining full custody, J. Scott requested to receive all benefits that his son’s mother had previously received since he was now a single parent, just like she was. Unfortunately, he was denied the opportunity to receive food stamps and daycare assistance. Though his son was a current Medicaid recipient while in his mother’s custody, Medicaid immediately cancelled services and denied him. During these times, J. Scott struggled. He didn’t have a job, no money and no income coming into his home. Every road he turned down had a “cul-de-sac” of limitless no’s and denials. Although he was trained in welding and had a Commercial Driving Licenses, he was simply not awarded the opportunities as most.

It was only through his mental toughness, personal perseverance, and with some TRUE-LIFE ANGELS that J. Scott and his son made it through. J. Scott’s now 8-year-old son is in school and performing well. His son has scored in the top 6% IN THE NATION academically, and is also an amazing athlete in football who absolutely loves playing Fortnite on PlayStation. J. Scott eventually started a business and made a way to support his son
