New funding aimed to reduce gang activity in Hobbema

Two Hobbema programs will get funding as part of the province’s Gang Reduction Network.

Healing Life, a program to help Samson Cree Nation youth and adults recover from grief, trauma and abuse and make healthy lifestyle choices, will receive $125,000.

Leader in Me, an early intervention program to help children resist gang recruitment and self-destructive behaviours, received $65,000.

The money comes from $1 million granted through the Alberta Civil Forfeiture Fund, which will fund eight gang reduction programs province-wide.

The fund uses proceeds from the sale of property gained through crime to support victims’ groups and crime prevention programs.
