Caring for Our Communities

The Gang Alternatives Program recognizes that helping young people starts with helping the communities in which they live and learn. We care about our communities, and have made community clean up services a fundamental part of our core values to help residents actively resist gang activity in their neighborhoods.

Over the past 19 years, we have worked with city government and local agencies to improve and expand our services, so that we can help more communities. We’ve worked with community leaders, business owners and schools officials to ensure that we are addressing the unique needs of every community. And most importantly, we have worked with young people, their families, and the residents within each community, to empower them with resources that can make a positive difference in their streets. 

Community clean up services include:
