Disrupting the flow of young people into organized crime or gangs

South Asian Community Resource Office (SACRO)

In It Together Program
The South Asian Community Resource Office (SACRO) program, along with the Youth Resource Centre, is part of the Archway Community Services program-collaborative initiative called the In It Together 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 and their families (ages 11-25) who are at high risk of being involved in organized crime and gangs.

Mentorship Program
Low to moderate risk South-Asian youth (ages 13-18) is matched with a trained volunteer mentor. Youth learn how to have a pro-social, positive relationship with a role model who engages in extracurricular activities with them.


Who We Help

  • South Asian youth aged 11–24 and their families who live in Abbotsford
  • At-risk of gang involvement or currently involved in gang activity

To Access SACRO

  • Community professionals can make referrals and youth and families can self-refer.
  • We currently have a waitlist for services, and it can take up to two weeks to receive a response due to heavy workloads.
