Amigos For Kids was founded in 1991 to aid South Florida’s most valuable resource, its children.
The organization aims to increase awareness of its mission of strengthening families and educating communities in the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
Amigos For Kids actualizes its purpose every day via key program components, including Education, Awareness, and Advocacy. The Education framework includes an After-School Program and its evidenced-based Nurturing Parents Program.
The After-School Program at José Martí Park serves children ages 6 – 11 daily. The educational parenting workshops serve countless families throughout the region.
Since its inception, Amigos For Kids has organized one of the city’s largest and most meaningful holiday toy drives.
The effort, reaching thousands of children over the years, makes their specific holiday wishes come true. To fulfill its mission, Amigos For Kids relies on the support of generous individuals, corporate partners and volunteers.
