Our Story


For three decades, AMIkids Gainesville has been a catalyst for transformation, lighting the way for youth in Gainesville, Florida. Our dedicated team of professionals operates a transformative program during regular school hours, providing a safe haven for boys and girls. By working hand in hand with our kids and their families, we empower them to overcome challenges and acquire the essential skills needed to reintegrate into their communities and flourish. Our program, recognized by esteemed institutions such as the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, is built on evidence-based practices that have proven to make a profound impact on the lives of children and communities. Through education, behavior modification, and comprehensive services, we guide our kids towards personal growth and triumph over adversity.


What We Offer


Community-based programs offer daily services to youth and families, with youth returning home each day if programming takes place outside of the home. We offer eight unique services with our community-based programs.

Juvenile Justice Day Treatment

Juvenile Justice Day Treatment provides intensive supervision and programming for youth referred primarily due to delinquency. Behavior and skills training, education, and treatment services are provided five days per week, typically three to eight hours daily.

Alternative Education

Alternative Education programs are designed to help students who require additional support typically not available in traditional schools. Students in attendance benefit from academic remediation, positive behavioral skills development, and individualized attention to succeed. AMIkids Alternative Education programs include Infinity Schools, School-within-a-School, and Charter Schools, which operate according to the school district schedule.

Family Services

Family Services provide home-based skills-building and/or family counseling and intervention using evidence-based practices. Family services may include program models such as Functional Family Therapy and the AMIkids Family Centric Model™. Family Services programs last approximately two to six months.

Pre-apprenticeship (Career Exploration, Workforce Development)

Pre-apprenticeship programs prepare students aged 16-24 for successful careers, offering industry training that is aligned with each community’s needs for skilled workers. With a combination of academic, technical, and job readiness courses and individualized case management, AMIkids prepares and places students into higher education, jobs, and apprenticeships.


Program Enhancement Services may be provided as standalone or supplementary to a program.

AMIkids Family Centric Model™ (FCM)

These services include research-informed skills training for families, provided in the home or community setting weekly. Services are designed to reduce anti-social behaviors of youth, improve the psychosocial functioning of youth, and improve family functioning.
