Case Management

Gang Reduction and Youth Development Program (GRYD) 5th – 10th Grade

GRYD was established as part of an intensive effort to foster youth development and reduce the influence of street gangs in the lives of youth ages 10-15 in the Rampart/Pico Union area.  GRYD services include individual meetings with youth, family meetings, peer group sessions, and referrals for support services with a case manager.  For more information, contact Irene Almaraz at or (213) 365-7400 Ext. 5602.
