Gang Prevention Resources

The Grid

The Gang Reduction of Denver (GRID) is a network of federal, state, and local government agencies; local businesses; community-based, grassroots and faith-based organizations; and community resident associations that work in a collaborative manner to address gang violence. GRID is housed under the Denver Department of Public Safety and is committed to the suppression and prevention of gun and gang violence in Denver. This is achieved through several strategies including connecting resources within communities, enhancing information sharing and collaboration among agencies, and seeking change in community norms regarding violence.

Second Chance Center aspires to reduce recidivism rates of formerly incarcerated men and women by helping them transition to lives of success and fulfillment.  We take the approach that the level of an individual’s personal investment of focus, effort, and commitment will determine how successful their re-entry process will be, and how well maintained the freedom will be.  SCC is staffed by experienced Criminal Justice Insiders offering case management, mentoring, and uniquely positive “role modeled examples of the possibilities” in order to help participants reestablish their lives and deal with the challenges of returning to their families and communities.
