Our Story

Our Program

Founded in 1996, AMIkids Sand Hills is a privately non-profit, staff-secure residential facility in Patrick, South Carolina, serving the surrounding area. Our program operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, serving kids who have committed a variety of non-violent offenses and are involved with the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice. Our kids living in dormitories on campus in a remote location ideally structured to help them work through their issues and gain the needed skills to return to their families and communities.

AMIkids Sand Hills uses the evidence-based, research-driven AMIkids Personal Growth Model © in offering dynamic programs and comprehensive services to treat each kid's unique issues, primarily focusing on education, behavior modification, and treatment.

Since 1996, AMIkids Sand Hills has helped over 1,300 kids transform their lives and despite our kids averaging over four arrests prior to enrolling in our program, 74% of our kids do not re-offend within the first year of completion of AMIkids programs nationally.
