Project Description

Educate Our Kids Child Care Center was built in 1965 and was located at 3388 14th Street at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, on Detroit’s near west side.  The Educate Our Kids Child Care Center was a day care center for children that also specialized in parental educational services, namely, arranging and conducting conferences, workshops, and seminars in the field of child care and in connection with parenting.  The Educate Our Kids Child Care Center was run out of a house and a building next door to the house.  The house was built in 1928 and the adjacent building was built in 1965.  Most of the services and day care operated business from the adjacent 1965 building.

When the adjacent balding was built in in 1965, it was originally called AMRI Personal Services.  The mission of AMRI Personal Services was to provide education and trainings to single mothers on how to be a successful parent. From 1965 until 1995, AMRI Personal Services operated out of 3388 14th Street.

In 1995, AMRI Personal Service became Educate Our Kids Child Care Center.  The mission of the business was to continue provide educations and trainings for mothers, but now the business has a new day care center.  Educate Our Kids Child Care Center operated out of the location for a number of years before filing for bankruptcy.

In 2001, Educate Our Kids Child Care Center filed for bankruptcy and had to close down the business.  The business/homeowner left the building and the home behind, including most of the paperwork, materials, supplies, and furnishings from the day care center.  Shorty after closing, Educate Our Kids Child Care Center was broken into, scrapped, and vandalized.

In 2013, a large fire broke out in the home and it destroyed much of the interior of the home.

As of 2015, Educate Our Kids Child Care Center still sits abandoned.  There are no current plans for the buildings or the property.
