Mission

Miami Youth for Christ works together with other like-minded partners to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact the world around them.

Miami YFC is committed to empowering the children, youth, and families of our community by providing faith-based services that enhance their emotional, spiritual, physical, and educational well-being through our educational and outreach programs. 

Miami YFC History

For over 65 years Miami YFC has had a distinctive history of youth outreach in Miami-Dade County. The YFC organization was incorporated in 1945 and the Miami chapter was incorporated in 1948 with the mission of positively impacting young people everywhere by working together with the local community.

In 1993, the KIX neighborhood outreach program was established in West Homestead with the mission of offering help, hope, and wholeness to at-risk children and youth. KIX has provided all-inclusive, free after-school services for urban children and youth from Kindergarten through High School for over 20 years. Today, KIX serves more than 500 children and youth in three locations of Miami-Dade County: West Homestead/Florida City, Jordan Commons in Princeton, which is the nation’s largest Habitat for Humanity community, and in Overtown at the Miami Rescue Mission.
