Join us for an Embraced:Fully interview on Thursday, May 5, 2022 at 6:00 pm Pacific – GRASP (Gang Rescue and Support Project)

Our next Embraced:Fully Interview Series call will be Thursday, May 5, 2022 at 6:00 pm Pacific.  We’ll be recording the session in case you can’t make it.

GRASP (Gang Rescue and Support Project)

Our special guests for this interview are representatives from GRASP (Gang Rescue and Support Project)

GRASP (Gang Rescue and Support Project) is a peer-run, intervention program that works with youth who are at-risk of gang involvement or are presently active in gangs, helps families of gang victims, and serves as a youth advocate. GRASP works so well because it is primarily run by ex-gang members who broke free of the gang life-style and turned their lives around. The staff understands how difficult it is to make this transition and the challenges facing youth who do it. Established in 1991 after a tragic ‘drive-by’ shooting death of a teen, GRASP has evolved into a highly respected and successful program of Denver Youth Program, a non-profit organization, that for over 51 years has helped kids to better futures through one-on-one mentoring.

GRASP utilizes the philosophy of LaCultura Cura which literally translates to “culture cures”. It doesn’t necessarily pertain to one specific culture, but with a “healing” culture in general and valuing people’s individual cultures with which they were raised as a vehicle to deliver the healing message.
