Developing Kingdoms in Different Stages (K.I.D.S.) began in 2007 with a mission of building strong communities by reaching out to youth and their families through prevention / youth development, family management, and community support services.
Since then, the youth we have served have had a 99-100% high school graduation rate. In 2019 alone, we worked with over 618 youth through more than 1,600 hours of programming.
All programs are offered at no cost to participants.
