Gang Exit and Community Outreach Services

Gang Exit and Community Outreach Services works in collaboration with Correctional Services to support individuals over the age of 18 who express desire to end their gang affiliation. Participants may be incarcerated or living within the community; lack the supports and resources to successfully transition out of gang life independently; and have presenting issues such as legal troubles, addictions, interpersonal conflict, lack of family and community supports, and poverty. Through intensive case management, participants will be supported in setting goals, connecting to services, and increasing independence from their previous affiliations.

Services and supports include:

  • Connection to employment and/or education
  • Fulfillment of basic needs
  • Creation and maintenance of pro-social connections
  • Connection to cultural and spiritual communities
  • Risk identification, assessment, and minimization
  • Development of pro-social skills and behaviours
  • Identification of and connection to a broad range of support services
