Helping kids in Louisiana discover their potential since 2008.

Our Story

AMIkids Acadiana & AMIkids Lafayette

Since 2008, AMIkids Acadiana has been dedicated to helping kids discover the potential within them, transform their lives and strengthen our community. Located in Branch, Louisiana, AMIkids Acadiana empowers our kids through care and guidance to reach that potential and, as a result, breaks the cycle of failure and poverty. Partnering with the Louisiana Office of Juvenile Justice, AMIkids Acadiana is a residential program for boys ages 14-18, and has helped over 600 boys since our founding.

Acadiana boys

In 2013, we opened AMIkids Lafayette to better serve kids in the area who are struggling in school, displaying learning disabilities or behavioral issues. This alternative school allows our kids to find solutions to their issues and catch up on their grades and classes to be re-inserted into their schools, or complete their GED or high school diploma.

Even kids with a troubled past have the potential to achieve a bright future, and AMIkids Acadiana and AMIkids Lafayette work every day to separate their troubled past from a bright future.

With your support, we can change the lives of our community's kids and impact generations to come.
