AFTERCARE FOR INDIANA
AIM is excited to have been selected as the Whole Foods Market's January, February & March’s recipient for their One Dime at a Time Program. Thanks to customer support AIM received a generous donation.
RTV6 stopped in at AIM to film some of the holiday baking and surprised AIM with a $2000 donation from RTV- Scripps Howard Foundation to support our mentoring and culinary program.

Our 12-week program provides hands-on real world training in a commercial kitchen. Learn front of the house and back of the house skills. Gain valuable work experience, earn stipends and incentives for reaching key milestone. The program is offered at no cost to youth ages 16-24 who are eligible for free or reduced lunches.
Dine with a Purpose
On April 23, 2015, Crossroads Cafe had its grand opening. Crossroads is our social enterprise that provides delicious made from scratch meals and job and life skills training for at-risk youth.
Crossroads provides a comfortable location for neighbors, students and others to peruse the newspaper, to enjoy coffee and tea beverages, to eat a meal, to utilize free wireless internet access, to study, to read, to catch a mid-day snack, and to socialize with friends and colleagues. All proceeds are reinvested back into our job training program.
Our current hours are Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Starting May 28th we will have extended hours being open until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Saturdays 8:00-2:00 p.m.
We provide dine-in and carryout service.
SUMMER FOOD PROGRAM
AIM is once again serving as an Indiana Department of Education Summer Food Program sponsor. This program is designed to provide healthy meals for children who might otherwise go hungry during the summer time when school is out of session.
AIM is an open site. Any child 18 years and under may come to the AIM Center at 4151 Boulevard at 10 a.m. for a healthy morning snack and/or 4:15-5:00 p.m. for a healthy supper.
All food is prepared from scratch and served by youth participating in our Crossroads Culinary Job Training Program. This provides valuable hands-on job training experience while at the same time allowing our program youth to do their part in helping to alleviate childhood hunger among their peers.
