The purpose of this project was to develop and fund a project to add a mental health component that will serve former gang members and their families. The host agency for this project is Aztecs Rising in Los Angeles. A comprehensive review of the literature was conducted to build insight and knowledge about the gang culture, risk factors for joining gangs, risk factors for leaving gangs, and mental health needs that pertain to the gang population. A thorough search for potential funding sources led to the California Endowment as the funding source for this project. A grant application was developed to support this project. Submission of the actual grant was not a requirement of this thesis project.
