In It Together – Anti-Gang Program
The purpose of the In It Together program is to disrupt and/or interrupt the flow of young people into organized crime or gangs. We provide individual case management, youth outreach, parent and youth groups, recreation, essential skills and counselling for youth (ages 11-25) and their families who are at high risk of being involved in organized crime and gangs.
Partners in this program are the South Asian Community Resource Office, Youth Resource Centre, Abbotsford Police Department, and Abbotsford School District.
Who We Help
- Youth aged 11-24 and their families living in Abbotsford who are at-risk of gang involvement or currently involved in gang activity.
To Access In It Together
- Community professionals can make referrals and youth and families can self-refer.
- If you are a parent or youth making a self-referral please note that it can take up two weeks to receive a response due to heavy workloads. We currently have a waitlist for services.
