Amigos Blue Backpack Project

Amigos For Kids has been working to prevent child abuse and neglect for 30 years through programs that help families thrive. Financial struggles erode the protective factors that help prevent child abuse so we are deeply committed to helping families with concrete supports during times of need. Even small actions such as providing a backpack, school supplies, and uniforms can make all the difference to a struggling family and help pave a path to a successful future for a child in need. For three decades, Amigos For Kids has sent thousands of needy children back to school with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom. Through The Blue Backpack Project, we reach low-income families throughout Miami-Dade County through a myriad of partnerships with schools, community organizations, and government agencies. Funds raised through The Blue Backpack Project, also help support our free after school program. After school programs, while in some cases affordable, are not within the financial reach of the families we serve. With so many children in our community who come from families that can’t afford to buy even basic school supplies your help is more critical than ever.
