About The Episode

The reports are in, and a fifty-five page report has been generated to determine how to better coordinate gang prevention, intervention, and suppression programs operated by different entities throughout the community. We discuss how Yakima will now turn the Yakima Gang-Free Initiative (GFI) into an action plan.

Great program, great community for implementation.


pls do indepth report on how much money is paid to director and monies available to kids. It's very very disturbing, youth will not be reached. Writing grants to make a position for yourself to continue work and take the bulk of monies... is this right? the truth will come out. See what Yakima County is doing, what Sunnyside is doing with paying directors and having available funds for youth programs, now they will make progress! Yakima GFI will not allow community imput.
