Family Intervention Team (FIT)

Family Intervention Team – FIT works with middle and high school aged boys who are at risk of joining a gang. The team includes former gang members and retired law enforcement officers. Boys who meet the criteria are invited to join FIT.

Small groups meet at schools once a week.  In addition, FIT provides home visits and one on one counseling over the 24 weeks that the boy is enrolled in the program. Topics covered in the group sessions include:

  • Family communication
  • Gangs & the Streets
  • Role Models
  • Respect or Fear
  • Friends & Peer Pressure
  • Substance Abuse
