Alone Without HOPE
There are Teens in our community who are:
have incarcerated parents
lacking a strong family unit
living in gang infested areas
lacking educational support
We Give THEM HOPE!!
At Hope Learning Academy we understand that gang intervention is a complex problem and that no situation is exactly the same. That is why we bring a team of experienced professionals together to bring the flexibility, solutions, and safety that real gang intervention demands. We do whatever it takes to help teens at-risk for gang involvement thrive outside of the reach of the gang.
STEP 1: SAFETY: Working with experienced professionals we determine the safety of our staff, the family we are helping, and the teen. A safety plan is put in place and parents work with our staff to begin the intervention process.
STEP 2: WHOLE APPROACH: Our founding director, with many years of experience successfully intervening in the lives of gang members, gang prospects, victims of human trafficking, and their families, formulates a plan to bring all the necessary resources forward to execute the intervention process.
The intervention process will usually involve:
Potential relocation of families and at least changing the school environment of the teen
Coordination with rescue teams for victims of human trafficking
Academic assessment and intervention leading to a high school diploma and beyond, including college attendance preparation.
Vocational training an resourcing
Parent education, coaching, accountability, and domestic intervention as necessary
Referral to therapeutic resources
Provision of basic clothing and nutritional needs
Extracurricular activities and sports
Substance abuse intervention
Wrapping a family of trustworthy adults, mentors, and life coaches from the community around the family and teen.
....and ANYTHING ELSE NEEDED!
