The control and reduction of violent crime are goals of every community, however, in the San Fernando Valley, CIS-SFVGLA has demonstrated year after year after year, an understanding of the gang mentality, a precise clarity of required protocol, a willingness to engage at the street level, and a call to action that no other organization ever has. Our ability to intervene, interrupt and facilitate communication at all levels of the process has redirected thousands of youth/young adults away from gangs and toward non-violent, safe and healthy lifestyles and has created a demand for our modeled approach at the local, national and international level.
