Support Groups 



 

The Support Project consists of peers, staff and former gang members meeting in informal and educational groups where they talk about issues facing youth in the gang life-style and in their personal lives. Designed to be a ‘safe’ environment, these group meetings encourage open discussions and help staff get to know and assess youth for more intensive intervention needs. The groups meet weekly and are open so a kid may begin attending at anytime. Youth stay in these groups for ten to twelve weeks. If, after three months, the youth does not need more intervention, he/she is referred back to the original agency. Groups are conducted weekly. GRASP group meets every Thursday sessions are held at the 303 W. Colfax Ave Denver, CO 80204 beginning at 6:00 P.M., On the 9th Floor
