At Kedila, we conduct two program tracks to help uplift our constituents and attempt to bring them out of poverty. Kedila’s After School/Summer Camp programs make an impact in the lives of school-aged children from low-income families in New Orleans. Kedila's YouthBuild program focuses on young adults ages 18-24 who have not obtained high school diplomas.
Kedila Family Learning Services, Inc. (“Kedila”) was founded in New Orleans post-Katrina to provide the social services desperately needed by residents as they slowly returned to the city. Our mission is to provide education, training, support services and affordable and safe housing to the constituency we serve. Our vision is to provide hope to those who have been left behind as they continue with the daily struggle of life. Kedila prides itself on being an organization “Where the Journey to Learning Begins.”
Kedila is a place where "the journey to learning begins." Through our programs, we provide hope for those who are left behind as they continue with their day to day struggle to improve their lives.
