Isolate existing gang members from the micro-community by building trust between law enforcement, children and families traditionally influenced by gang activity.

The gang business model has survived longer than nearly all fortune 500 companies. Why? Simply put, they distract young children away from early education, keeping them illiterate and dependent on the gang for knowledge.

Nationwide, approximately nine million at-risk youth will reach age 19 without ever having a mentor.  Safe Passage mentors are one on one with each vulnerable child, five-days a week. Leaving no room for gangs to establish influence.

Simply stated, social cohesion matters. The practice of social cohesion is what gangs use to attract youth. Safe Passage community partners replace what the gang provides and deliver a sense of  individual, relational and belonging.

 The Safe Passage program costs are about $1,250 a year per child. More importantly, a non-Safe Passage youth with six or more gang offenses over his or her lifetime imposes $4.2 to $7.2 million in costs on society and the victims.
