Amachi is a nationally based program, specifically designed for children of the incarcerated, that originated in Philadelphia, in 2001. Amachi is an African word that means, Who knows but what God has brought us through this child. Amachi of Central Kentucky began in 2004 and is located in Lexington. The program is based on “people of faith (and goodwill) mentoring children of promise.” WJRF offers Amachi of Frankfort.
If your child has been impacted by incarceration, we encourage you to participate in our mentor program. The more support, the better!
Mentees can be ages 6-16 and must spend one hour per week with their mentor.
